Bacon Street is excited to welcome four newly elected members to their Board of Directors.

The organization, which offers a variety of services to teens struggling with addiction or behavioral issues and their families, held a meeting in May at which the elections took place.

The new board members include Sheldon Franck, Bernie Ngo, Melanie Davis and Antonija Simpson.

Sheldon Frank has been attorney for the past 40 years at the law firm of Geddy, Harris, Franck & Hickman. During that time he has also held board positions with several other local nonprofits, including Housing Partnerships, United Way, Community Services Coalition and Heritage Human Society.

Bernie Ngo is the President of Monarch Bank Williamsburg. Previously he served as president of SunTrust Bank Williamsburg, a position he had held for 28 years. He has also served on the boards of Williamsburg Land Conservancy, Goepper Scholarship Trust, United Way, Williamsburg Community Health Foundation, Williamsburg Symphonia, James City County EDA, Walsingham Academy and Avalon.

Melanie Davis is the technical communications and training lead for General Electric Healthcare, an organization she has been with since 2009. She is also active in the choir and vestry at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.

Antonija Simpson came on as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones in 2009. She is both a board member and committee chair for the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg, in addition to her position on the board for An Occasion for the Arts. Previously she held a board position with The Historic Triangle Senior Center.

Bacon Street anticipates the diverse experiences these four individuals bring to the board will make them assets to their organization with whom existing staff and board members are excited to work.
