Gov. appoints Partners' executive director to statewide Financial Literacy Council

Partners for Children and Families recently announced that Stuart Mills, its Executive Director, has been appointed to the statewide Financial Literacy Council.

The North Carolina Financial Literacy Council was established by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2009. The Financial Literacy Council is responsible for helping to deliver financial literacy education and increase financial literacy among North Carolinians.

In addition to serving as the Executive Director of Partners for Children and Families, Stuart Mills is the President of The Given Tufts Foundation, Inc., a director of Pinehurst’s Village Heritage Foundation and a Trustee of The O’Neal School in Southern Pines. Mr. Mills was formerly the Executive Director of the Moore County Literacy Council. A lawyer and accountant by background, Mills is passionate about financial literacy as a means to achieve many of our personal and community objectives in Moore County. 

According to Mills: “I am grateful to Governor Cooper for this appointment and for the opportunity to support the important work of the Financial Literacy Council. Financial literacy is often the key that unlocks opportunities for our Moore County residents. To give just one example, I believe that improved financial literacy and business acumen could help us effectively address the shortage of child care professionals in Moore County.”

About Partners for Children and Families: For more than 25 years, Partners has operated as a private non-profit organization promoting early childhood development in Moore County. According to Mills, “we are doing everything in our power to help pay for child care for low-income families, increase the quality of child care, provide nutritious food for children in child care and develop children’s literacy skills.” Programs sponsored by Partners include the Dolly Parton Imagination Library®, Motheread®, Reach Out and Read, Raising a Reader, GMR Summer Reading Stations, The Barbershop Literacy Initiative, NC PreK at the Moore County Schools and the Positive Parenting Program.
