The John T. Edwards Foundation board met on April 5, 2019 in Winston Salem, hosted in the beautiful Wake Med Biotech Center by our community partner, the Addiction Recovery Care Association, who started the day with exciting news of their expansion to an innovative new facility!
After thanking Larry Sharpe for his leadership in the inception of the JTE Foundation and accepting his transfer to the Advisory Board, the board members installed new officers:
President - Michael McGuire
Vice President - Sid Jordan
Secretary - Susan Mattox
Treasurer/Archivist - Mattie Miller Decker
Media Coordinator - Tab Ballis
New board members were welcomed, including, from L-R:
Richard Martin (between Larry and Tab)
Ronnie Wilkes (not present)
Hitting the ground running, the new JTE Foundation laid the groundwork for a planned family systems conference that will highlight the work of John T. Edwards, in light of the urgency of current challenges, like the opioid epidemic that is splintering families across the United States.
