The Chamber recently had a Red Carpet welcome for three new Lenoir County residents. The Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber Commerce and the Red Carpet Committee are pleased to welcome Matt Henderson, Rebekah Rhodes and Neil Hartigan.
The Red Carpet Committee loves to prove to our newcomers why Kinston and Lenoir County is a great place to call home.
Matt Henderson is a new teacher at EB Frink and teaches 6th grade. He came to our community from Cortland NY.
Rebekah Rhodes is a science teacher at South Lenoir High School. She graduated from the University of Wyoming. Rebekah loves hiking, camping and reading books.
Neil Hartigan moved from Dover Delaware and is a Teach for America teacher at South East Elementary. He enjoys all kinds of active sports but love to read too.
Rebekah and Neil are pictured with Laura Lee Sylvester, president Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber.
Thanks to chamber member sponsoring businesses each eligible newcomer receives a Red Carpet Gift Card package valued at over $1,000 turning new residents into lifetime customers. The program works hand in hand with the Think Lenoir County (TLC) project which supports local shopping and encourages people to relocate here.
If you moved here from outside Lenoir County in 2015 and are interested in the program or just want more information, please contact Laura Lee Sylvester at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252.527.1131.
