Linda Piper has been connected to UNC Wesley for the last eight years. While her youngest is a current Wesley student, her older two children have also been actively involved in UNC Wesley and her oldest served as a part-time praise band leader for three years after graduation from UNC. She and her husband, Mark, have served on the UNC Wesley Board of Visitors for the last several years and they have both held various leadership roles in their home church, First United Methodist in Wilson, NC.
Professionally, Linda has been in the child care industry for 30 years. She recently retired as Executive Director of the NC Licensed Child Care Association, where she served for 14 years after operating child care centers in Wilson.
Linda and Mark recently bought a home in Chapel Hill and are spending more time locally as they look to retire here in the next five years or so. Linda is especially passionate about finding ways to involve parents in the work of UNC Wesley, and is truly honored and excited to be part of the board.
