We’re energized by the commitment and determination of our grantees and partners —
from Greenville, where a middle school teacher is changing students’ lives; to Greensboro, where stakeholders in the Cottage Grove community are addressing root causes of poor health; to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where the seed of an idea has spread across the country and drawn families out of homes and into nature. There are stories of positive change all over the state, and we’re grateful to be part of them.
Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t express my most sincere appreciation to Brad Wilson, who will retire as our Foundation chairman at the end of this year, and enthusiastically welcome Patrick Conway, Blue Cross NC’s new president and CEO, who will succeed Brad in this role.
We’re eagerly looking ahead to next year. While in many ways these are challenging and confounding times, we are emboldened to do more — for our grantees, for our partners, and for the people who call North Carolina home.
My best to you and yours,
