Christin Allphin, new chairman of the board
I was first introduced to New Danville back in 2008. My boss at the time took me out to see the property and then we attended Tea on the Lawn (now called Spring Thing, which will be April 22). We literally sat on blankets in the field, wore our big hats, and had tea sandwiches on China plates. I met so many great clients of New Danville and learned all about who New Danville was. And of course, walked away with my first, but not last, handmade pen. Since that time, I have been thankful to watch the growth of this organization from just a barn and a day program to a thriving community. I have been with Woodforest National Bank, for what will be 15 years this year, and have been blessed to have the opportunity to have been involved through the journey. These past couple of years have been stressful for so many, but I am so proud of what the team at New Danville has done to persevere and pivot to provide the services so many rely on.
This year I am honored to be in the role of Chairman of the Board for New Danville, and I am excited to be a part of a great board and team to help bring even greater growth and new ideas. We have some big plans in store that we hope to implement to transform New Danville by our 20th Anniversary Year in 2025. So, stay tuned for all of the exciting things to come!
