Letter: Clarifying identity

To the editor:

Due to many phone calls and social media conversations, I’d like to offer clarification on a recent item in The Dispatch.

I, Rev. Dr. Omega Travell Perry, was not the same Omega Perry who was listed in the arrest reports several weeks ago. There are approximately four people by the same name in Vance County.

There have been several inaccuracies about me being that person, and that’s just not true.

To clarify, I am the assistant minister at St. Mary’s A.M.E. Zion Church in Kittrell. I’m a Southern Vance High School graduate and furthered my education at Shaw Divinity School, Virginia Union Theological Seminary Ext. and at Original United Christian College.
