“Even while I was working in the corporate world, I always aspired to help others. When the opportunity presented itself to join Mebane Foundation and I interviewed with Mr. Mebane, it was obvious that he had amazing vision and a great mission to help educate our children in the very best way possible. I share his vision, and I’m committed to ensuring the important works of this Foundation make a positive impact, not only in Davie County, but in North Carolina and beyond.”
