There are unsung heroines in our midst who have made Asheville the scene that it is. One of these women is Ann Von Brock, who recently retired from years working at the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County.
Ann moved here in the ’70s with energy, spirit and passion for people having better lives — people of all colors, ages and socioeconomic situations. She has motivated and created countless programs bringing people together and successfully influenced the Asheville we have today.
I bow to her with appreciation and gratitude for all her years of service and hard work! Thank you, Ann.
