Born in Winston-Salem, David graduated from Reynolds High School, and earned BA and MA degrees from Washington and Lee and UNC-Chapel Hill. David retired in 2017 as President/CEO of Arbor Acres after 32 years of service to that organization. He has seen first hand the impact Dancing Classrooms has on young students not only by teaching them the art of dance, but also by instilling values associated with civility and healthy relationships. David believes in the mission of Take the Lead NC, the principal funding source for Dancing Classrooms, and delights in demonstrating his support by dancing in TTL 2020.
