On July 28, Partners for Children and Families announced that Gov. Roy Cooper had appointed Stuart Mills, its Executive Director, to the statewide Financial Literacy Council.
The Financial Literacy Council was first established by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2009 and is responsible for helping deliver financial literacy education and increase financial literacy among North Carolinians.
In addition to serving as the Executive Director of Partners for Children and Families, Mills is the President of The Given Tufts Foundation, Inc., a director of Pinehurst’s Village Heritage Foundation, and a Trustee of The O’Neal School in Southern Pines. Previously, he served as the Executive Director of the Moore County Literacy Council.
“I am grateful to Governor Cooper for this appointment and for the opportunity to support the important work of the Financial Literacy Council,” said Mills. “Financial literacy is often the key that unlocks opportunities for our Moore County residents. To give just one example, I believe that improved financial literacy and business acumen could help us effectively address the shortage of child care professionals in Moore County.”
