PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Pender County native Gary Traywick is a Special Superior Court Judge for North Carolina. Having that role means he has to travel to different parts of the state to hold trials.
Next week, he will be on the bench in Ashe County, and that will make him only the seventh Superior Court Judge in the state to hold court in all of North Carolina's 100 counties.
Traywick is also a historian, and will receive a special honor in that field next month. He began practicing law in his home town of Burgaw in 1969. And has been on the bench for 18 years.
Some ten years ago, he started a book, detailing the history of Pender County. He wanted to make sure there was an updated publication of how Pender County got started and events that have taken place there thru the years.
