Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

A:  I am a father of four – all at GRACE Christian, Holland (6th) Hensley (4th) Myers (K) and Crew (K) and husband to Kendall Withers. I was born and raised in Raleigh. I took some time up in the mountains to attend App State and then headed to the coast (Wilmington) for my first career, but came back to Raleigh in 2009 to settle in and start a family.  

Q: How long has your family been a part of the GRACE community?

A:  We began with Holland attending Kindergarten, seven years ago.

Q: How long have you served on the GRACE board?

A:  Easy answer; I joined the meeting before COVID hit. I was not able to attend the first meeting and immediately following we went virtual. I went over a year before meeting many of the board of trustees in person.  

Q: What unique perspective or experience do you think you bring to the board?

A:  GRACE has been blessed with growth in so many areas. At the time I joined, the board was considering how the growth looked moving forward. With my background in real estate, I was able to assist with discussions around a renovation on the new campus or looking to grow in a new location. I believe that's why I was asked to join initially, but the responsibilities have grown since then. 

Q: Are you a part of any specific board committee(s)? 

A:  I am the Chair. I am also on the governance committee and the new campus committee.  

Q: What are some of the ways your family has been involved at GRACE over the years?  

A:  My company and us personally have been supporters through time and treasures. My wife was a regular substitute for the school, so she is a rockstar with giving her time to GRACE. Just recently, she stepped into the role as a first grade assistant. I am able to volunteer as a lunch helper on occasion.  

Q: What, in your perspective, makes GRACE Christian School stand apart from other area Christian schools?

A:  The school's community and culture, including the relationships between students, parents, and teachers, create a distinctive environment. You always hear others mention the benefits of culture, but we truly believe that. Our children are genuinely Known, Valued, and Loved.
