Cathy Alston-Kearney ’81 on the faith and patience needed to enact change

This week we talk with Cathy Alston-Kearney, an alumna from the Morehead-Cain Class of 1981. Cathy grew up in Nashville, North Carolina and now lives in Warrenton, North Carolina. Population: 862.

For twenty-one years, Cathy was the executive director of the Warren Family Institute, helping underprivileged families find affordable housing. She now works as the student success director for Warren County Schools and as a pastor for Oak Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church—a denomination known as AME for short.

Cathy was a SEVEN Speaker at the 2018 Alumni Forum in October. Her talk, which she titled “The Men in My Life,” received a standing ovation. Soon you'll find out why.
