Greg Hobby will serve as Chair of the CIS Board of Directors for the 2019-20 school year. This will be Greg’s sixth year on the Board. During his tenure he has served on the Finance, Governance, and Program Evaluation committees.

Greg was introduced to CIS through his employer, Bank of America. He recently retired from the bank in order to focus his time on family and community issues and organizations important to him, including Communities In Schools.

“I continue to be energized by the power of this organization and its ability to shepherd young people toward success,” said Greg. “The importance of a caring adult in the life of a young person is so critical, and CIS makes that possible for so many young people in Charlotte.”

Greg grew up in Raleigh and is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill. He and his wife, Julie, have two children, Alex (18) and Rachel (16).

We are also pleased to welcome the following new CIS Board members, who began their three-year terms in August:

  • David “Dae-Lee” Arrington  – Artist & Producer
  • Kathryn Black – Bank of America
  • Vida Harvey – JELD-WEN
  • Dwight Jacobs – Duke Energy
