If you've ever woken up with a house full of kids and no clue how to entertain them -- and no free resource for finding out there is to do -- then you understand why Sanford, Broadway, and Lee County, NC needed a central source for local information. And that's how the idea for SocialSanford was born.
Though the site started as a potential resource for parents, it has branched out to include information for all residents of the area. SocialSanford hopes to guide, inform, and encourage Sanford, NC and Lee County, NC community members to get out, get involved, and remember why this is a great place to live!
SocialSanford is currently under the guidance and direction of Kelly Quinones Miller. Anyone interested in joining the team should shoot her an email -- the site definitely works better when managed by a team!
Here's all you need to know (and more) about Kelly:
She attended Jonesboro Elementary, J. Glenn Edwards Elementary, East Lee Junior High, and Lee Senior High before leaving Sanford to earn a Bachelor's degree in English and Women's Studies from UNC-G and a Master's degree in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College in Boston.
Having missed the South and wanting to raise her children around family, Kelly moved back to Sanford in 2001. She worked for the EPA and Eli Research, both in Durham, before launching a freelance writing, editing, and design career in 2007. She now works from home while surrounded by her 9-year-old son (a student at J. Glenn Edwards Elementary), her 3-year-old daughter, some fish, and a coop full of chickens.
Kelly is a casual environmentalist whose hobbies include reading, writing, gardening, composting, teaching, and volunteering in the community. She currently serves as president of the Central Carolina Jaycees and is on several committees dedicated to improving life in Lee County.
When he's not teaching his English classes at CCCC, Jason enjoys spending time with his wife and two young sons. A "city-boy" and bookworm, he has acclimated well to his new life in Lee County. Spending the last six summers at home has given him time to explore the variety of activities that the area has to offer. Now he wishes to share his knowledge with you and learn from your experiences as well.
