​Park and Rec Staff Member Appointed to State Independent Living Council

9/11/2019

​Congratulations to Senior Therapeutic Park and Recreation Manager Karla Gray. Last week Governor Roy Cooper appointed her to the North Carolina State Independent Living Council (NC SILC).

Karla was recruited by a search committee seeking individuals who have personal, professional, or a combined knowledge of disabilities and how to include those folks in the larger community. Karla will serve on the 18-person council with members who have connections to the disability community and six Ex-Officio members.

The NC SILC is a federally mandated, not for profit, governor-appointed council. By federal law, the NC SILC is required to develop a three-year plan that addresses how statewide independent living services will be provided, develop and support a network of Centers for Independent Living, and monitor and evaluate the implementation of the plan.
