My Story

I was born in Charlotte, NC and raised in Florence, SC and have lived mainly in Atlanta and Raleigh since graduating from NC State. When not with my wife and two sons, I play a lot of tennis!

My Impact

I have 23 years of experience in higher education advancement, sales and marketing, and management consulting. I was most recently the director of development for NC State’s Poole College of Management and previously held consulting, business development and project management roles with Arthur Andersen Business Consulting and several chemical and pharmaceutical industry firms. I earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from NC State and an MBA from the University of Georgia.

LENORA HINTON EVANS

Development Director

My Story

Native North Carolinian, born in Dunn and have lived in Raleigh most of my life. I began my professional career in Nursing and after 10 years, joined the Presidential Advance teams of both Bob & Elizabeth Dole, followed by my own political foray into politics by two runs for the NC Legislature.

My Impact

All this prepared me for a treasured opportunity to direct the work of the Frankie Lemmon Foundation (FLF), which is the FUNdraising arm of the Frankie Lemmon School (FLS). My fundraising teeth were cut in the political arena, but my heart remains tied to the critical work done for the children and families of FLS.

My Story

I am a former Senior Executive with Accenture, who has turned his passion for wine collecting into a career helping others. I was born in Nicaragua and am bilingual in both English and Spanish. I studied at Davidson College and have lived in North Carolina for the past 32 years.

My Impact

I volunteered with TWE for the past two years, helping to organize the wine auction. Last year, I helped automate the silent auctions by using cellular technology to bid on auction lots.

CIARA CORCORAN

Program Assistant

My Story

I was born and raised in Fairfax, Virginia before attending Elon University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and Drama & Theatre Studies. I love to read and write, and when I’m not caught up in a book, I can be found working out or trying new recipes.

My Impact

As a recent addition to the Frankie Lemmon team, I’m excited to get to know everyone and dive deeper into the non-profit sector. I have previous non-profit experience creating PR materials for the Alamance County Arts Council. In addition, I’ve assisted with grant writing and research. My passion is communication, and I hope to communicate the wonderful work of Frankie Lemmon to our families and supporters.

TIFFANY BOGGS LANGHI

Triangle Wine Experience Director
tiffany@frankielemmonschool.org

My Story

Virginia native and graduate of North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. Following a number of years spent working in the legal arena and software industry, I began my journey in the wine world in 1999. It has been a pleasure working with wine pioneers whose efforts helped raise the bar for all American winemakers and brought California to the forefront of the international wine community. Many great things happened for me in 2010 – the marriage to my husband, Joe Langhi, in February and the position at the Frankie Lemmon Foundation in July.

My Impact

Committed to the production of excellence, I am honored to organize and preserve the Triangle Wine Experience annual wine and food event, which continues to raise over a million dollars each year for the children of the Frankie Lemmon School.
