The generosity of the Couch family has inspired me to be a better philanthropist and to volunteer, get involved, and give back to the local non-profits and other charitable causes. I couldn’t think of a better recipient for their commitment to the growth of the LEC.

When I “inherited” the County’s Historic Preservation Challenge Grant program, I met T.J. for the first time.

McEvoy Tribute

Every once in a while you have an opportunity to learn something, and become a better person because of it. For me, that opportunity happened when I joined the Board of the Life Enrichment Center and got to know T.J. Couch. T.J. was my role model for serving on a non-profit board, and I learned […]
