Senior Seasons Academy Kick Off
Join us Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, for the winter 2019 kick-off of Senior Seasons Academy. We will begin the day with fellowship and coffee at 10 am. At 10:30 am, we will make our way to the Faith Center to hear from Betsy Mowery, the N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation Development Director, about the Gratitude Train and 49 Days of Gratitude.
Betsy Mowery Has Trains In Her Blood. Betsy Mowery has always felt a connection to railroading. Her father served as a federal employee aboard the Southern Railway, sorting mail. The family often enjoyed railroad excursions together, so it made sense when Mowery joined the staff of the N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation in 2016, bringing with her a wealth of donor cultivation and grant writing experience. Before joining the museum, Mowery served for six years as the marketing and development director for Salisbury’s Waterworks Visual Art Center. Mowery is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she majored in business. She and her husband have two daughters—Kathleen, a graduate student at age 22 and Skye, 17.
