Member Spotlight

The Trust is the beneficiary of the talents and attention of many passionate preservationists, and Nancy Carter Bland is foremost among them. Mrs. Bland and her husband, Dr. Bland, have been generous and loyal members of the Trust for more than a decade. The Trust is honored to recognize Mrs. Bland for her ongoing efforts to make preservation a priority in Georgia.

A native Atlantan and graduate of Northside High School as well as Emory University, Mrs. Bland is committed to maintaining the historic resources that make her hometown special. Mrs. Bland is also a patron of the arts, including the High Museum and the Atlanta Opera.

Mrs. Bland's passion for music and preservation will intertwine on November 18th, when she sponsors the Trust's Classics at the Castle concert featuring the incomparable soprano Leah Partridge. Rhodes Hall is a unique venue to showcase a tremendous voice. We hope you will join us for this afternoon concert, benefiting our organization and helping us to continue our efforts throughout the state.

All of us at the Trust thank Mrs. Bland for her efforts and her inspiration- she is a champion for preservation and the arts, and all Atlanta benefits from her dedication.
