The O’Neal School is excited to have Lisa Dishman and David Hensley as honorary chairs for the School’s 2018 Annual Auction to happen on Saturday, February 24th.
Parents of freshmen twins, Caroline and Maddie, they have been involved in many facets of the School since they first enrolled their daughters in kindergarten.
From active memberships with the booster club, to donating to the auction as well as catering an annual school picnic, Lisa and David have always been strong supporters.
“After moving to the area from Virginia when our twins were five, we quickly knew that O’Neal was the right school for our daughters,” says David and Lisa. “We could not have been more right. The experience our girls have gotten from a PreK-12 school environment has been so positive in ways we would have never imagined. Additionally, the commitment of the teachers, staff, and administrators to do more than just educate, but to help prepare young adults for a productive future, is invaluable. We initially selected O’Neal for the quality education and amazing facilities, but ended up with a whole lot more.”
Lisa and David are strong believers in private school education and support many of the area’s private schools. They also give to various military charities to include the local Duskin & Stephens Foundation and various chapters of the Special Forces Association.
Lisa and the children are members of First Baptist Church in Southern Pines where the girls are active members of their youth group.
David is a serial entrepreneur who founded several companies after his retirement from the US Marine Corps in 2004. Currently located in Ashley Heights, the companies are Quantico Tactical, a nationwide retailer and the third largest NC based federal government contractor; Tactical Gear Distributors, a wholesale distributor of weapons, weapon accessories and gear; and TacShield, a manufacturer of apparel, tactical gear and weapon accessories.
Lisa and David currently own all of these companies and maintain full-time active roles with Quantico Tactical. They spend most of their free time supporting their children who are involved in travel volleyball and dance.
The Annual Auction is O’Neal’s largest fundraising event that supports the annual operating budget of the School. 350 Auction tickets will be available this year, and the event will feature live and silent auctions, raffles, cocktails and a seated dinner.
