Matthew Arnold, Retired (Scriptorium) Joins Our Board of Directors
Matt and Linda Arnold have lived in Chapel Hill for 20 years and have been involved with Family House since 2015.
Matt’s business career focused on software development and integration services centered around complex publishing workflows in compliance applications. Matt served in both individual contributor and technical management roles before transitioning to business development with Scriptorium here in North Carolina.
After nine great years with Scriptorium, Matt retired with plans for family, travel, and volunteer efforts. Upon their move to Governors Club, Matt became very active on several committees including the club’s Arts Society. He has also served in various committee roles in the East Chapel Hill Rotary Club, where he is currently President.
The Arnolds involvement with Family House increased as they frequently found themselves in waiting rooms at UNC Health, having discussions with patients on housing in Chapel Hill. They bring up Family House as an important option.
As an officer of ECH Rotary, Matt was part of the conversation as the club organized a 4 year pledge to buy a room in our ‘Share the House Campaign’. Our partnership with East Chapel Hill Rotary has been strong as members Bob Woodruff, Cliff Butler, Charles Harrison and Brian Stabler have long been proponents of both Family House and Rotary.
Matt brings a clear understanding of the mission of Family House plus an interest in helping us share the word through UNC Health.
