The Davie Community Foundation welcomed three new members to the board in January. Elizabeth Seymour, Tammy Fleming, and Kerry Tatum will serve 3-year terms.

The 2024 Executive Board will be led by Chair Brian Nicola, Vice Chair  Mike Morton, Secretary Davin Brown, and Treasurer Phil Fuller.

“Every year we seem to add fantastic new board members,” said Jane Simpson, president and CEO. “They bring a variety of knowledge, new energy, and great ideas to the conversations. I look forward to working with them in the new year.”

Jennifer Hanes, Krysta Scott and Greg Matthews left the board in December. Hanes served a two-year term, serving as president for her last two years. “We will miss her leadership,” Simpson said. “Krysta and Greg provided valuable insights during their terms and will be missed. We plan to keep them all close in the years ahead.”
