Candace Carpenter-Herman

I have had the privilege of being an educator for over a decade, fulfilling classroom and other leadership roles at the secondary level.  Being a Rural LIFE literacy coach for the last three years has provided opportunities for me to grow professionally while supporting the Greene County school district.  My current role allows me to partner with Rural LIFE while maintaining support in my home district as the middle school district academic coach.  My most  valued roles, however, are those of wife to my best friend and mother to my sweet daughter.

    The Niswonger Foundation was established in 2001 to make a positive and sustainable difference in education in Northeast Tennessee. This dream was envisioned by Scott M. Niswonger, who founded Landair Transport, Inc. and Forward Air Corporation. These companies were the first two Greeneville-based companies to be taken public in the history of Greene County, Tennessee. Jointly, the companies have combined annual revenue of over one-billion-dollars and employ more than 5000 people.
