Today we are pleased to announce that Winston-Salem business leader Donny Lambeth has accepted the State Board Chairman position with the North Carolina Chapter of the March of Dimes; Lambeth served for 18 years on the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education, retiring in December 2012 to serve the 75th District in the NC House of Representative.

Lambeth is a proud father and grandfather, making his commitment to the good health of moms and babies personal and meaningful.
“As I child, I acutely remember my mom participating in our local March for Babies events. I even remember going with her door to door, collecting change for the efforts of the March of Dimes,” stated Lambeth. He went on to say, “Over the years—as I toured the neonatal nursery as part of my job at the hospital—I saw first-hand how the March of Dimes’ efforts have made a real difference in the lives of so many families. I am extremely excited to be part of this effort across North Carolina.”

“I am pleased to have Donny join our Board,” said Randy Beaver, 2013 Board Chair for the Chapter. “I am sure that he will bring the same drive, dedication, and passion that made him a well-respected member of the community to his efforts on behalf of March for Dimes. I know his efforts and contribution will go a long way.”
