A little about me

Lindy Perry-Garnette Personal 140 Comments

I moved to Greensboro to accept a job to lead the struggling YWCA Greensboro. During my seven year tenure, the YWCA has not only stabilized its finances but has also added significant new programming including a shelter to serve families experiencing homelessness as well as an entrepreneurial program for women with challenges making it difficult to maintain traditional employment. We moved from 4,000 square feet of rented office space to a 19,000 square foot building we purchased and renovated, creating a beautiful presence in east Greensboro. Currently, we are in the home stretch of a $5 million dollar capital campaign.

My Family
My wife Alma and I have shared 20 years together. We have three adult children, a teenage daughter and seven grandchildren, four of whom we are currently raising. As a racially diverse, “non-traditional” family created through adoption, birth and partnership, we have felt first- hand, the effects of prejudice and the challenges of not fitting in particular “boxes”.

Active in the Community
Since coming to Greensboro, I have been an active participant in our community. I was appointed to the Commission on the Status of Women in June 2011 and served until August 2014. I was appointed to the Human Relations Commission in October 2014 and continue to serve. I also served as a member of the inaugural Police Citizen Review Board from March 2016 until May of this year. Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors of the Guilford Partnership for Children and as the Vice President of the United Way Executive Directors Council. Throughout my tenure in Greensboro, I have also participated on a number of community coalitions and task forces looking at topics such as access to healthcare, affordable housing and integrated services.

Long and Varied Professional Career
My 37-year professional career includes work with multiple disenfranchised populations, academia and multiple leadership positions. I have had the pleasure of serving individuals with developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, economic challenges, those experiencing homelessness and youth and families working toward family and self-acceptance of sexual orientation and gender identity.

I spent 14 years as a County government employee in Northern Virginia. As such, I have intricate knowledge of the inner workings of municipal governments, including budget processes, personnel management, the importance of inter-departmental relationships, risk management and the challenges municipal employees face as they work to meet the needs of the municipality and serve citizens.

I have served as a national child and family mental health consultant for the National Mental Health Association. Since 2007 I have served as an Adjunct Associate Professor at The University of Maryland University College, teaching Diversity Consciousness, Disability Studies, Race and Ethnicity and Domestic Violence. Having led several nonprofit organizations, I am keenly aware of the financial responsibilities of being entrusted with the money of others, of the necessities of coalition building and collaborations, the need to constantly be aware of changing community needs and the need to be transparent and accountable.

Awards and Recognition
I was extremely honored in February 2017 to be selected as the winner of the 2017 McDonald’s Rhythms of Triumph Award given annually to an individual who “has exhibited a willingness to improve the daily lives of their neighbors and constituents”. The Latino Community Coalition of Guilford recognized me in April 2017 as a Corazón Latino (Latino Heart), “non-Latino community members, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that have consistently served as an ally to the Latino community”. In August of 2015, The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro presented me with the Game Changer Award.

  26. Anyone who talks about what the Greensboro Police Department does on occasion should be in office, not those get-along types who’ve been told time and again of Chief Scott’s insider division, who, in my case, came all the way out to Valley Hills Mall–that’s what that Department is capable of: nearly anything, per Chief Hinson, the biggest piece of garbage in law enforcement furthering the City of Greensboro’s discrimination issues who had the nerve to get a settlement for the same aw

  48. The very crux of your writing whilst sounding agreeable initially, did not really sit properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do well to help fill in those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly end up being amazed.
