Felts has also had similar roles as a member of the faculty at Mount Olive College in Mount Olive, N.C., Elon University in Elon, N.C., and Alamance Community College in Graham, N.C.
Felts' professional experience goes well beyond the classroom. He serves as the president of Felts & Associates Consulting Group LLC in Burlington. He also is a retired law enforcement officer who served as a Deputy Chief of Police in Burlington, and he has served in several law enforcement-affiliated professional associations. An avid volunteer in his community, Felts is a past president of the Alamance Rotary Club, Alamance County Human Relations Council, Alamance County Family Abuse Services and a graduate of the Alamance County Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Alamance, where he formerly served on the program's steering committee.
