He is a native of Garner, a 1974 graduate of Garner Senior High School (now Garner Magnet High), and a 1978 graduate of North Carolina State University. Stanley holds over 20 years experience with non-profit boards. He spent fourteen years with the Office of Rural Health and Community Care and has assisted non-profit boards in all aspects from writing and reviewing by-laws, auditing and reviewing board minutes, recruiting and training board members, and attending board meetings state wide. His training deliveries are based on Robert's Rules of Order, Articles of Incorporation, board recruitment and retention, how to conduct a meeting, to how to make a motion.
When asked: What is at least one aspect of TheGifted Arts mission/model that excites you most? Why did you elect to join the Board?
He answered: As a child, I was unable to join the Cub Scouts as a youth in Garner, because my mother, Pearlean, a single parent could not afford the uniform. I did not have an uncle, church member, or neighbor to bridge that gap. TheGifted Arts is bridging that gap in my hometown, and I want to assist.
