He served as vice chairman of the board and a member of the finance, audit, and presidential search committees. He assisted with architectural decisions for new construction projects and was involved in presidential transitions. He served on the board of the school’s fund-raising arm, The Walker Foundation, for three years.

“Dave was always faithful in attendance and enthusiastic in participation,” said Bobby Dobson, the school’s board chairman. “His expertise in business matters, especially accounting and finance, have been invaluable.”

Brown is also active in the Lake Wylie community. He currently serves as vice president of the Mayday Project, which raises and distributes funds to organizations that help homeless, abused, and disadvantaged children in York County. He is president of the River Hills Lions Community Foundation and an active member and past president of the River Hills Lions Club.
