GREENSBORO, N.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (NC-06) this week honored Greensboro’s Jodi Lorenzo-Schibley as the Sixth District Community Hero of the Month for May 2017.

Each month, Rep. Walker awards a constituent, business, or organization in his district for displaying extraordinary acts of service and for making a difference in the lives around them.

“Jodi is an inspiring example of how one person can change many lives,” Walker said. “She is a tireless advocate for the needs of individuals with mental illness, and is an important voice for some of the most vulnerable in North Carolina. She plays an important role in our community, and is facilitating much-needed conversations about mental health.”

Jodi was presented with a certificate and a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol.  In attendance during the ceremony was also Guilford County Commissioner Jeff Phillips.  Jodi also was recently named a recipient of the prestigious 2017 Triad Business Journal Outstanding Women in Business.
