Woronoff Named to Foundation Advisory Board
The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation has named David Woronoff, publisher of The Pilot newspaper in Southern Pines, to its advisory panel.
Each member serves a three-year term. In its advisory role, the panel helps the foundation better understand issues affecting North Carolina and opportunities for more effective grant-making. It also helps identify major new initiatives of the Foundation.
Woronoff has been publisher of The Pilot newspaper in Southern Pines for 12 years. He is currently a board member of the North Carolina Press Association (NCPA) and in 2007 served as president of the NCPA community newspaper division.
Woronoff received a bachelor's degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, headquartered in Winston-Salem, was established in 1936 as a memorial to the youngest child of R.J. Reynolds and Katharine Smith Reynolds. During its history, it has made grants of more than $414 million to projects in all 100 counties in North Carolina.
Although it makes grants to a wide range of projects, it now gives special attention to five focus areas -- community economic development, the environment, democracy and civic engagement, pre-collegiate education, and social justice and equity.
