Last week I had the honor of spending time on the road, traveling across North Carolina and meeting with fundholders, board members and community leaders in eastern North Carolina. Each road trip is always different, and this one was no exception.
It was a wonderful week on the road. I had the pleasure of being a part of conversations, big and small, with a host of folks who care deeply about our great state and are invested in making our communities stronger. Many of the conversations had on the road are serious, while some are just plain fun. They all leave me with something to think about.
This week’s highlights are no different, including:
Nothing beats connecting with people in person, face to face. It’s one of the simplest joys of my job.
North Carolina is full of people who leave me thinking, bring a smile to my face and are always a good time to be around. I can’t wait for my next trip. See you on the road!
