Erica Wrencher

I am an educator and one of the planters of The Good Neighbor Movement, a new faith community in Greensboro.  My teaching and faith-rooted community leadership spans urban and rural contexts in North Carolina and Chicago. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Arts in Teaching from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

I am currently working on a PhD in education and trying to spend as much time as I can with my family and neighbors. I enjoy singing, exercising, eating good food and drinking good wine with my community and family. I am married to my best friend, Brandon, and we are the parents of two sons who are growing up way too fast, Phillip and Morris. 

 I am passionate about mobilizing students to make connections between the past and the present to realize their responsibility in bending the shape of history toward justice and peace. I am honored to have worked on the November 3rd,1979 Unit because it is critical in understanding the realities that my students, neighbors, and family live with in this city. The primary motivation for me to work on this project was my connection to the survivors. They continue to inspire me with their strength and perseverance in seeking true justice and reconciliation in the face of on-going challenges.
