Evelyn Terry Represents You in House District 71 Forsyth County
This is my fifth term at the North Carolina General Assembly and I am grateful to the voters of my district for their confidence in allowing me to serve. My priorities are deeply rooted in education and consumer protection, social justice issues with strong emphasis on women’s rights.
My public service started years ago teaching reading to neighborhood children to read in my home after school. This grew until we had to move the group from home to a church that had more space. This was in the 1970’s since then I have not stopped working with and encouraging young people to pursue educational excellence. I also strongly support using individual creativity believing firmly that education leads to personal freedom.
My experience in developing and using public policy to help all people is extensive. I now serve as House Representative for Forsyth County’s 71st District. My values were honed as a young child living in the home of my mother and her father, my grandfather Mr. George Black the famous handmade brick maker here in Winston-Salem.
I feel so blessed to be able to use these values to navigate through the political system on behalf of all of us.
Things that I am proudest of include my family; Fred the love of my life the past 45 years and our son Franklin, the best child any parent could dream of having. I also enjoy working outside, vegetable and flower gardening give me great joy. I like all types of music and enjoy life’s finer offerings.
I an undergraduate of Johnson C. Smith University and received my Master’s degree from Appalachian State University. I am also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Our family belongs to Dellabrook Presbyterian Church here in Winston-Salem and currently we attend Mocksville Second Presbyterian Church where my spouse is Pastor.
