It's with great excitement and pleasure that Sandhills PRIDE welcomes Erica Nelson as their Administrative Director.
Many people got a chance to meet Erica at the Sandhills PRIDE booth at Southern Pines Springfest this past Saturday, and she will similarly be working at the Scholarship Celebration this Saturday.
As the first employee, Erica will facilitate further outreach to the Sandhills and expand Sandhills PRIDE’s capacity through programming and development.
Erica comes to Sandhills PRIDE with experience on political campaigns in 2016 and 2018, as well as numerous leadership roles, including as a course facilitator at Sandhills High Adventure. Erica was an intern for the North Carolina Democratic Party in 2016 and served as the sole organizer with the North Carolina Democratic Party in Cumberland County in 2018. She plans to incorporate her knowledge of fundraising, development, and communication into her new role at Sandhills PRIDE.
“I am very excited to take this journey with Sandhills PRIDE,” Erica shared. “Sandhills PRIDE has been working for 6 years to make the Sandhills a better, more equal, place, and I am honored to have the opportunity to take the organization higher and further than it’s ever been!”
