Before officially joining our Board of Directors, Dawn served as a Grant Review Panelist for our Community Impact grants. During her time as a panelist, she shared her expertise and experience in reviewing outcomes and outputs of potential grantees all while learning more about the needs and resources across Northeast Georgia. Dawn and her husband, David, live in Athens and have three children ages 22, 20 and 17.
We are so grateful for Dawn and her service to our region. Thanks for being an active part of the United Way of Northeast Georgia team!
