Empower Me Center Board Director Rick Bell

Rick Bell, Board Chair

Mayor of Lebanon, TN

I first became involved as a board member with Empower Me Center back in 1999 when they first started the nonprofit organization.  For years, I watched camp take place at the county fairgrounds, the city recreation center and local churches.  I wanted to become involved again when I learned about their desire to build a permanent facility for the participants.  When I observed the kids having fun with their friends, I knew they deserved a place of their own. When that became the goal, I wanted to do everything that I could to help.


It is an honor to serve as chairman of the board for Empower Me Center. I have served on several nonprofit boards in Wilson County, but this is the one that pulls at my heartstrings. It is my goal to lead Empower Me toward its dream of a new building of its own. It will take a lot of work by the board and a lot of help from others. However, working hard and finding that help is the least we can do for the Empower Me kids, young adults and their families.
