Nancy Marsiglia : Her Light Will Shine

I am blessed to have known Nancy Marsiglia for the past 30 years and was deeply touched by her extraordinary love for the city of New Orleans and her devotion to enriching the lives of others. As one of the first 50 Founders of our Women’s Leadership Council in 2002, Nancy’s volunteer leadership was instrumental in the formation of United Way’s Success By 6 initiative, ensuring that all children, regardless of income, received access to high-quality early education and were ready to learn before entering kindergarten.

Congratulations to Gail Dixon and Beth Terry for 30 Years of Service!

Wow, what a week!   I came to the United Way Community Leaders Conference to learn, share and grow with those that we fight alongside each day - fighting for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.  But I also came with another purpose, to celebrate 30 years of service given to United Way by our teammates, Beth Terry, Chief Transformation Officer [retired] and Gail Dixon, Accounts Payable Coordinator.

Make United Way Part of Your Mother's Day Tradition

Urban dictionary defines mom as "The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else. Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because moms always know how to make it all go away.  Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests."  Mom: what an amazing role to play, and often it's a role that is thankless and goes unnoticed.
