ASHEBORO — Randolph Partnership for Children (RPC) recently hosted its Annual Meeting and Volunteer Recognition Breakfast at Pinewood Country Club. 


The 2022-23 board officers and board director class of 2022-25 were recognized during the event, which included the passing of the gavel to incoming Board Chair Marcelo Pariz.  The 2022-23 officers also include Vice Chair Tyler Wilhoit, Secretary Debi Lagueruela, and Treasurer Wayne Rowe. The board class of 2022-25 includes Susan Hayes (through June 2023), Dr. Lynette Graves for a second 3-year term, Commissioner Hope Haywood for a second 3-year term, Tracie Murphy for a second 3-year term, Lynn Jones for a first 3-year term, and Michelle Delk for a first 3-year term.  


Executive Director Lisa Hayworth presented the 2022-25 Strategic Plan to the board and community at this year’s event. Four overarching goals drive the plan, including 1. Collaborations; 2. Financial Strength; 3. Advocacy and Outreach; and 4. Leadership and Staff. The board formally approved the plan. Staff members will review progress on a bi-weekly basis, while the board will receive at least quarterly progress reports and an annual dashboard that reflects outcomes metrics.  


In addition to official board business, six exemplary volunteer certificates were presented at the breakfast.  Recipients included Pinnacle Financial Partners, Millstone Creek Orchards, Dr. Chamberlin of Asheboro Children’s Health, Margie and Paul Trogdon of Trogdon’s Day Care, Hamilton’s Steakhouse, and Leslie Zimmerman of Zimmerman Vineyards.  


The agency spotlighted their work with early educators and the Professional Development Early Education Cohort program, Reach Out and Read and progress to expand the program to include the earliest well-child check-ups from birth to six months of age, and Family Engagement and Leadership Coalition activities, including efforts to embed parent leadership into agency work.
