Why I love High Point

– Being in the furniture industry, I have a bias towards High Point as the Furniture Capital of the World. The High Point Furniture Market is very important to us and although I grew up in New York, I have been coming to the market since I was old enough to remember. Beyond the market, High Point is where I spend my days. I love the growth in the area and have high hopes for where our city is going.

Why I chose to get involved

- Change does not happen overnight, and it requires people in the community to step up and tackle important issues. I am never one to shy away from hard work, and I have a strong desire to bring our city to new heights. There is so much potential and everyone seems to be ready for a change. I was so thrilled to learn about all the initiatives already underway, including projects where millennials could get involved like beautification through greenways, etc.
