I first met Ms. Earle a week ago. She is the founder of Asheville’s Youthful HAND Center located in the Lee Walker Heights neighborhood. I was immediately drawn to her upbeat and spunky personality. She told me she stays young by walking 30 minutes a day and eating an apple a day. Her positive energy shined through. And so did her love for the children she helps.
OpenDoors honored Ms. Earle at their gala event, Starry Night, last Saturday by awarding her the 2015 Laureate of the Year Award. Please take a minute to read about Ms. Earle in the OpenDoors newsletter to learn about all the wonderful things she does for our community.
