David Wallace soon will retire as executive director of Answering The Call Together (ACT,).
“I thought it would be a short-term opportunity and here it’s been 13 years,” he said.
Looking back on “a lot of really wonderful memories” with ACT, Wallace said being able to volunteer with his family is at the top of the list.
Wallace’s wife, Treena, and their two daughters have also volunteered with ACT. Their oldest daughter now lives in Texas and recently had a baby girl, and their younger daughter works at Fisher-Titus.
Wallace said volunteering with his family will always be special.
