Mrs. Betty M. Reynolds was a long-time employee of the company that is now known as EMBARQ.

For more than 30 years, Mrs. Reynolds served in various capacities at the phone company’s offices in Candor, Mt. Gilead, Troy, and Asheboro. Mrs. Reynolds is fondly remembered by coworkers for her help in organizing and preparing the warm and elaborate dinners held each Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter at the company offices for their employees. Mrs. Reynolds’ coworkers, friends, and family continue to support this scholarship fund. Mrs. Reynolds passed away in 2018.
