Description: Cairo’s 1st Pioneer Bear is inspired by the fact that I work for Pioneer Bank, and I wanted to incorporate some history of Cairo in my bear.

About the Artist: This is the 4th Bear that I have done for the Cairo Bear Project. I am no means an artist, but I enjoy working on projects that benefit others. I live in East Durham with my husband and 3 sons and have lived in Greene County my entire life.

I have been very involved with the Cairo Durham School District from Durham Elementary PTA, CD MSHS PTASA, CD Booster Club and BOE. I was also the President of Durham Little League , then Cairo Durham LL., I have coached youth soccer in the Rip Van Winkle Soccer Club and I organized the CD Youth basketball program. I have been involved in the Cairo Durham and Greenville Relay for Life.
