Congratulations to one of our own staff members! (He's seen here mulching one of our garden beds with Ray Griffiths, Building Superintendent.)
From an article in the Asheville Citizen-Times:
Lance Edwards, community investment director at the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, was elected to the statewide board of directors for the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits.
“I think it’s great,” said Edwards, of West Asheville, whose primary role at United Way is to oversee the annual competitive grant-making process and serve as the institution’s liaison to its community partners. I work with so many nonprofits locally, it will be nice to be able to share best practices. Serving on the board will help me keep my finger on the pulse of statewide trends.”
