The people behind the connection.
Meghan joined our team in mid 2020 due to a passion she has had her whole life for service, people, and the city of Ogden. This Weber State University graduate has quite a bit of experience with various missions organizations and nonprofits, both local and abroad. She is a gifted networker, writer, and coffee drinker. Her dream for the center is that it will be a safe place for the community for years to come.
Allen joined our team in the fall of 2020 to help with the formation of the UNC. His passion for seeing lives impacted through practical service and relationships influenced him to join the team after years working in the non-profit and corporate world in various capacities. His strengths of organizational structure, financial management, and networking are helping lay the foundation for continued success.
Chrystal is a founding board member and networking chair of the UNC. After working in the connection center neighborhood, seeing the UNC come to fruition is a real dream come true for her. Drawing from her experiences as a mother, business owner, and pastor, she hopes to love and serve the community and surrounding neighborhood consistently and faithfully.
Graham was asked to join the board soon after its conception in late 2020. He is the Board Secretary and Outreach Committee Chair. He has a background in education and currently works at a high school teaching English. Graham has grown up with a heart for serving his community that was fostered during his time in the Boy Scouts and later in a short stint with the Forest Service. Though only having lived in Utah for a short time, he already feels like he can call it his home and is grateful for this opportunity to give back.
Meet Dawn Wilson, Board Treasurer for UNC. Dawn is a long time resident of Utah and has had board experience with several Utah non-profits over the last 20 years as well as extensive experience in the financial services industry. UNC is very close to her heart as she loves meeting and helping to empower people in the local community to make a real difference in their lives. You’ll often find her at our food distribution events greeting people with a big smile. Dawn also loves spending time with her grandkids, baking, and gardening.
From the beginning of joining UNC’s Board, Brad saw the vision of what this very special community involvement mission could deliver. His career at Granite Construction has helped him develop an extensive network of relationships and vision of what is possible when a team works together to focus on a goal.
