“I'm excited for the community to see Dr. Qubein’s commitment of a revitalized downtown come to life and to show the hard work that have made this magical space a reality,” said Board Chair Barry Kitley, “with the help and acknowledgment of our major donors to this endeavor which include David R. Hayworth, Ronnie and Molly Millis Young, David Congdon, The Culp Family, The York Family, Pinnacle Bank, David & Stephanie Couch, Doug Witcher, Nido & Mariana Qubein, High Point University and the Congdon Family Foundation.”
