Arlie Culp

Thank you to Mr. Culp for sharing your passion

Sponsored by Randolph County Mayors Committee for Disabled Persons in partnership with NC Zoo, Arlie Culp Day at the Zoo celebrates local disabled citizens and honors the dedication of Mr. Arlie Culp.  Mr. Culp had a great passion for the people of Randolph County and a dream that every one be treated with compassion & respect. He wanted all people to have equal opportunities to enjoy life in Randolph County. The nine term Republican representative in the North Carolina General Assembly was one of the founding members of the Randolph County Mayors Committee for Disabled Persons. Mr. Culp represented the state’s 67th House district, including constituents in Randolph County from the time he was first elected in 1989 until his retirement in from the state House in 2006.
