A Leader Gone, But Not Forgetten

86ef4690-c69e-4318-9b36-d1e19732bed9.jpgEdwin S. Deaver, former Mayor of Hope Mills, was a dedicated leader and officer of Action Pathways’ Board of Directors for 23 years. In that time, he held several positions including Treasurer, Vice-Chairman and Chairman. Described as a calm, nonjudgmental leader by those who worked closely with him,  Mayor Deaver was actively involved with program efforts and, in fact, was responsible for the inclusion of Sampson County in Action Pathways’ anti-poverty focus through strong, yet tenacious, leadership. He helped to expand Action Pathways’ presence from just Cumberland County to the thirty-county agency it is today and thus, helped to change the lives of many as a result.
