Board Member Profile: Tommy Pate

Why do I serve on the board of Family Support Network of Eastern North Carolina? Simple….I can make a difference.

My wife and I have been blessed with two beautiful, healthy children. We have been spared the pain, the fear and the uncertainty that makes up the daily world of FSN’s parents. I can’t begin to understand their paths but I can make sure they don’t walk alone.

By profession, I am a financial planner. I understand and work with finances every day. By using my training and abilities, I can try to make sure that FSN has the necessary funds for our missions. Make no mistake…our mission is about children not funds. But the money has to come from somewhere. And that’s my job..

Why do I serve on the board? Because I can…and I should.
