RALEIGH – Annie Harvey was promoted from deputy warden to warden of North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women, effective May 1.

"Warden Annie Harvey is a proven, dedicated and experienced correctional administrator," said Correction Secretary Theodis Beck. "Her work ethic, professionalism and commitment is well documented. I believe that she is the right person and this is the right time for her to assume leadership of NCCIW."

In 1992, she went to NCCIW as its first unit manager. Two years later, she was promoted to captain supervising the N.C. Tourism and Transportation Information Center. In 1996, Harvey was named superintendent of the new North Piedmont Correctional Center for Women, which was opened in the spring of 1997. A year later she was named deputy warden of NCCIW.
