Sheila Laury, Director and Founder

Executive Director, Sheila Laury is very passionate about people helping other people. This calling to serve others propelled her to seize the opportunity to participate in, and graduate from the United Way of Central Carolinas Leadership Institute, Leading the Way, class of 1999. This community enlightening and life-changing experience ignited a fire within her heart to serve her community. Fortunately, the preparation that would be needed to help others began early in her life while being reared by loving parents.

She obtained the Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and Banking and Finance from Benedict College. Beyond college came a solid twenty-eight year diverse corporate, government, and nonprofit organizational background that created an extensive career portfolio. Her professional proficiencies span many areas of expertise including accounting, financial analysis and nonprofit organizational start-up and management.

The wealth of business experience that Ms. Laury acquired has proved to be essential in the establishment of the growing community-based grass-roots adult literacy organization, Fill My Cup!. The not-for-profit adult literacy organization was established in 2002. The mission of the tax-exempt literacy nonprofit is to provide tutoring to those adult residents of our inner-city communities, that need to learn to read, improve their reading, or obtain pre-GED skills.
