The Foundation for a Healthy High Point will welcome Dr. Harry R. (Frosty) Culp and Ms. Lydia Lyon as the two newest members to its Board of Directors. Terms begin on January 1, 2021.
“Frosty and Lydia have a wealth of first-hand experience serving vulnerable members of our community. Their perspectives will help the Board as we continue to strive to make a measurable impact on improving the health of Greater High Point,” said Leah Price, Board Chair.
The Foundation’s Interim Executive Director, Allen Smart, added, “These leaders have a passion for service and a commitment to improving health in our community. The role of the Board is critical as we face the uncertainties of 2021 for the health and human services community in the city.”
Culp is a retired dentist, lifelong resident of High Point, and currently volunteers with various community organizations.
Lyon is a retired public health nurse with expertise in maternal and child health, which aligns with the Foundation’s Healthy Beginnings Initiative.
“I am very honored to have been asked to serve the High Point community in this capacity,” said Culp. “I look forward to being a part of a foundation that seeks to promote health for women and children. Through my work in public health case management, I have witnessed how engaging with families can positively affect their future and thus impact the health of the community,” Lyon added.
The Foundation also elected its Board Officers for 2021, which include Leah Price, Chair; Matt Jobe, Vice-Chair; Stephanie Johnson, Secretary; and Charles Cain, Treasurer. Since its inception, the Foundation has approved approximately $11M in grant funding to serve the Greater High Point Community.
