President – Cathy Hawkins - ( - Retired - Lenoir, NC

I was born Catherine Ann Hawkins but have been Cathy since day one.

My family is one of the greatest pleasures of my life. I worked in the secular world for 20 years and then was blessed with the privilege of becoming a Ministry Assistant at Hudson First Baptist Church where I worked for 18 years.  I have now been retired for 4 years and love it. I have always loved NCBSA and look forward to serving as an officer again.
