The Wig Bank of Caldwell County began as the vision of two people: a hair salon owner and an oncology nurse. Both saw a growing need within the communities they served. The beginnings were humble with a few wigs in a closet; but were accompanied by a strong desire to help others. Their passion was contagious and soon The Wig Bank was a growing effort by many in the community who continue to share a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Today The Wig Bank is known as the little house on Mulberry Street with the purple door. It's also known for its welcoming interior where everyone can find educational resources regarding cancer, a warm cup of coffee and a friendly face to help calm, comfort and listen...

Twelve years ago, Mike Reed faced a dilemma most entrepreneurs would dream to have. Google was ready to purchase his graphics company, Skia, and make it an integral part of delivering a super secret new project that would later come to be the Android mobile operating system. He was about to sign on the dotted line when they asked ?OK, when are you and your team going to move to California?? Mike, a father and proud Chapel Hill native, had a better idea. Instead of moving all the way to California, Mike convinced Google to let him build a new department right there in Chapel Hill based on the strength of his leadership and the fact that he would be able to pull all the talent he needed from the nearby universities. Mike has continued to put his community front and center in the growth and vitality of his Google operations. As his team has expanded, they?ve stayed put in this beloved college town moving from one side of town to another and finally making their mark with a big Google sign on their building in the middle of historic Franklin Street. Mike?s commitment to growth, community, and a creative work environment continue as his team continues to be an integral element in many Google products. Mike will close out our Leadership Series with a short presentation followed by a reception.
