MCB Cares
By Carla N. Archie

Allow me to start my first newsletter column as president of the Mecklenburg County Bar with a few simple thank yous.


Every day that I wake up, I thank God for the privilege and opportunity to do more and do better.  I am especially grateful for the privilege and opportunity to serve as president of MCB.  Because I believe, like Marian Wright Edelman, that service is the rent we pay for being here.

 

I also appreciate my colleagues at Wells Fargo. I wouldn’t expect to find a “best friend” at work.  But are there people at work who do what best friends do--- listen, advise and support my personal and professional development? Yes! In that sense, I have lots of “best friends” at Wells Fargo and I thank them for their support.

I also thank our former Bar presidents who give life to the concept of servant leadership.  They have guided the Bar, sacrificed countless hours of time, enormous talent and untold resources.  We thank you.  I, in particular, am grateful for your example and humbled to follow in your footsteps.

When I was younger, I used to dream of changing the world.  I used to dream of solving problems and making sweeping changes with ripple effects that would be felt around the globe.  Read More
