Meet the Board
As a ministry of Saxapahaw United Methodist Church, SVK is overseen by a Daycare Board. The Daycare Board is composed of two active members of Saxapahaw United Methodist Church, two community members, one parent of a currently enrolled student, the Director, and the church pastor. Together this Board offers support and guidance to the program.
Pastor Sue Eldon
Sue is a pastor and a teacher, a theologian and a scientist. She is curious about the way the world works, hungry to learn more about God, and constantly looking for connections between seemingly disparate ideas. She is a life-long learner and an avid reader, enjoying theology, spirituality, psychology, and current fiction. She loves the outdoors and can be found hiking the trails in and around Saxapahaw every day. In addition, she enjoys writing, drawing, singing, gardening, and cooking. Sue has been the pastor at Saxapahaw United Methodist Church since 2010.
Kathryn Brown - Parent Representative
Kathryn joined the Saxapahaw Village Kids Board in January 2020 and helped to create a Parent Group on Social Media to connect SVK families. It has been a pleasure for her to join this village preschool community that has nurtured her daughter’s love for the outdoors through creative play, sensory learning, and movement. In her work with Cone Health as a Care Guide, she supports several medical practices in Alamance County helping patients overcome barriers to staying healthy and creating positive outcomes for their well-being. Kathryn earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Western Carolina University. Prior to her work in the medical field, she was a project manager for an early childhood music and movement publisher. In addition to serving on the SVK Board she is also a member of The Hawbridge School Board in Saxapahaw. Kathryn spends most of her free time outdoors on the trails, working in the garden, or running with friends. She lives in Saxapahaw with her husband, their young daughter, Evvie, and their two dogs.
