Chris W. Bird
President of Dillard Door & Entrance Control
“I was first introduced to the wonderful things going on at Regional One Health by the late John T. Fisher. John and I served together on the boards of both CrimeStoppers and the Memphis Rotary Club. When Tammie Ritchey joined Rotary, I learned about the outstanding work of the Foundation. I was fortunate to be present at a welcoming event for Dr. Coopwood and realized then that great things were on the horizon. I wanted to do all I could to help.”
CEO of Regions Insurance of Tennessee
“I believe a central pillar to the future success and prosperity of our city lies with our ability to provide high-quality healthcare to all our citizens. When my wife and I toured Regional One Health, we clearly saw the strategic role it plays in helping our city achieve this goal. Serving on the board is a way for me to contribute.”
Preston T. Jefferson
Owner of Jefferson Mortuary
“I volunteer my time and talent to serve on the board as another avenue to give back and serve my community. ‘To whom much is given, much is required.’ I take that statement to heart and want to share my experience, wisdom and compassion with people in the community at a greater level.”
Norman Davis Owen, Sr.
Managing Partner of Bowdre Gin, Inc.
“I am proud to represent North Mississippi as a member of the Foundation’s board. Regional One Health brings world-class, life-saving medical care to Memphis and the surrounding area, and I look forward to playing a part in its sustainability and growth.”
CEO of Orion Federal Credit Union
“I chose to serve on the board because I believe in the mission and vision put in place by Dr. Coopwood and his team. The impact that Regional One Health has on our community cannot be overstated. I can’t think of a better way to give back to a community that has given so much to me and my family, as well as Orion and its staff.”
