Friends and Neighbors of Swannanoa (FANS) is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to our Board of Directors.
Juliana Caldwell has lived in the the Valley since 1992. She works as Marketing and Communications Director at ArtSpace Charter School, and wishes a similar creative learning environment had been available when she was young. Juliana is a graduate of Carson-Newman College with a degree in Communications and Theatre, and is currently working toward her MFA through Goddard College’s low residency program. Juliana is proud of her two children, a daughter who lives in Durham and a son who attends AB Tech. Her favorite pastime is to mix a good story in with good trails and good friends.
Andrew Belz and his wife Mary Anna moved to Swannanoa in 2011. Andrew is Director of Advancement at Asheville Christian Academy and Mary Anna is a third grade teacher there. Andrew is a graduate of Covenant College and the University of Iowa. He and his wife have spent their careers in education, including 30 years at a boarding school in Iowa. Andrew and Mary Anna have five adult children, three of whom are married, and one grandson. Andrew also mentors a boy in Boys and Girls Club. Andrew enjoys music, sings in the church choir, and loves carpentry and building things.
Welcome Juliana and Andrew!
