Welcome Aisha!
The SPRC is excited to announce that Dilworth UMC has hired Aisha Newton as our new office and communications manager. Aisha holds a BS from NC A&T and an MS in Internet Marketing from Full Sail University. The joy of her life is her 8-year-old son, Kellen. Aisha began work Monday, October 26th so that Carol Biddy could share her knowledge with her.  We look forward to many years of great ministry together. If you get a chance, pop into the office lobby to welcome Aisha to the Dilworth family (wearing a mask and socially distanced of course!).
