When your Community Foundation began back in 1959, its leaders were selected by key organizations across the community to represent specific aspects of community life, from religious institutions to legal, educational and medical. Today, the process is different, but the 17-member Board of Directors maintains the same passion and commitment to needs and opportunities across the community.
Bill Smith became chair of the Board of Directors in 2010 and new members John Floyd, Katherine Harbert and Larry Thornton Sr. joined the group this summer. Other current members are Neal Berte, Dixon Brooke, Ralph Cook, Corbin Day, Eddie Friend, Gillian Goodrich, Ronne Hess, Robert Holmes Jr., Don Logan, Eddie Miller, Ruffner Page, Margaret Porter and Cameron Vowell.
