DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) – Visionary and unifier, characteristics used to describe Precious Freeman.
Freeman is the executive director of the GW Carver Interpretive Museum and managing partner of BFC Management.
She says her goal is to do whatever it takes to make the community better for children.
“It’s about the kids first,” Freeman said. “When you’re trying to impact children you can’t do that without impacting their families and when you impact their family you can’t do that without making an impact in the community.”
Freeman’s passion dates back to the time she spent as a child with her grandmother in Columbus, Indiana where she says she saw poverty, drug addictions, and pain.
This experience taught her that everyone is going through something.
“It came down to my heart,” Freeman said. “I want everyone to see what I see that we really need each other and any time we are able to accomplish something great we didn’t do it alone.”
Her hope for the community is that people live and get excited about their purpose.
“Everyday I’m fighting for a bright future because I believe in the next generation of Dothan and the Wiregrass area and I know that there are some amazing things too and there some great things happening even now.”
