Shad Higgins family heritage runs deep in Buncombe county. After the revolutionary war, his ancestors settled in and 7th generations later, we have Shad. The family has volunteered, worked and loved Buncombe County. Being passionately involved in his community has taught Shad that being the sheriff is more than having a law enforcement background; it is knowing the people of the communities you serve and knowing how to administer the business of the Sheriff’s Office.
