Granville County Government welcomes two new staff members:
Justin Ayscue of Oxford has been re-hired as Director of Human Resources for Granville County Government.
Ayscue comes to county administration with more than 20 years’ experience in human resources/management, and was previously employed as HR Director for Granville County from November of 2008 to May of 2014. For the past four years, he has served as Human Resources Director for the City of Oxford.
As Granville County Government’s HR Director, Ayscue will be responsible for all aspects of personnel management, ensuring the County is in compliance with all applicable Federal and State labor laws. In addition, he will administer all County-sponsored employee benefits for a workforce of more than 300 staff members, will oversee Worker’s Compensation and act as the primary source of information pertaining to payroll deductions, retirement, disability, etc. for employees and retirees. He will also be responsible for setting and allocating the county’s HR budget and for annual reports to the Department of Labor and reports to OSHA.
Prior to working in city and county government, Ayscue served as HR Director for Handcrafted Homes, LLC of Henderson and in supervisory roles for the Employment Security Commission in Vance, Franklin and Warren Counties.
A graduate of N.C. State University, Ayscue holds a degree in Business Management – with concentrations in Human Resource Management and Finance – and completed training in a two-year Certified Public Manager Program at the N.C. Office of State Personnel in Raleigh in 2006. He also holds certifications as “SPHR” (Senior Professional in Human Resources) and “SHRM-SCP” (Society for Human Resources Management, Senior Certified Professional).
He and his wife Amy have two children, ages 15 and 18, and attend Central Baptist Church in Henderson.
The Granville County Library System welcomes Andrew Maloney as branch manager of the Richard H. Thornton Library in Oxford.
Maloney comes to Granville County from the Boston Public Library in Boston, MA, where he served in several capacities ranging from Fine Arts Archivist and Music Specialist to Readers’ Services Librarian. He brings with him knowledge and experience in cultural research, program development, collections management and library technology, and has plans to use these skills to continue and further enhance the programming already in place.
“I hope to expand on what is already being offered by possibly adding more music and movie events and a greater outreach,” Maloney said. “There are so many ways that the library can partner with the community and help people connect, and I am looking forward to exploring those opportunities.”
Maloney also credits the library’s Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Library for their enthusiastic support of the Thornton Library.
A new resident of Durham, Maloney is a 2012 graduate of the University of Connecticut, majoring in English and Political Science. He received his Master’s degree in Library and information Science at Simmons College Graduate School and earned his North Carolina Public Librarian Certification in 2018.
Will Robinson will continue to serve as Director for all four branches of the Granville County Library System, which are located in Oxford, Creedmoor, Stovall and Berea. Both Maloney and Robinson can be reached at 919-693-1121. For more information about the Granville County public libraries, visit https://granville.lib.nc.us/.
