KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- August 7, 2018
- Chairman Brent Davis presented Mrs. Faye Sellers with a “Visionary Leadership Award” for her work to help coordinate the Feed Our Hungry Children Backpack Ministry.

Sellers, a retired Duplin County Schools’ teacher, had a vision from God several years ago. In that vision she was led to find a way to help feed hungry children in Duplin County. She wasn’t sure how it would be done or from where the funds and assistance would come, but she followed God’s lead.

Today donations and volunteers are the backbone of the Feed Our Hungry Children Backpack Ministry, which has provided food for thousands of children and families through the years.  Last school year 8,600 food packs were shared with several schools across the county.

 “Tonight it is an honor to recognize Mrs. Sellers for all she has done and all she continues to do for children and families across Duplin County,” said Davis. “On behalf of Duplin County Schools and our Board of Education, we want to thank her for her generosity and selfless spirit, and present her with this “Visionary Leadership Award.”
