Harold Rice new CEO at Ada Jenkins

Harold E. Rice Jr. has been named CEO os the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson. He replaces Georgia Krueger who previously announced her retirement following a 12-year career with AJC.


Rice, who began his career as a social worker, is currently vice president and chief operating officer (COO) of Community Link Programs of Travelers Aid Society in Charlotte, which is a non-profit organization that enables individuals and families to obtain and sustain affordable and safe housing. He joined Community Link in 2007 and previously held the positions of Director of Housing Programs and Program Manager, Homeless Services.

Rice said he is thrilled to join Ada Jenkins Center as CEO.

“I have committed my life to helping communities and individuals in need, and it’s an honor to step into this leadership position and help carry on the Center’s tradition of helping our client-partners achieve stability in their lives and give them hope,” he said.

This is especially true during this COVID-19 pandemic when so many in our community are suffering the health and economic effects of this dreadful virus, he added.

Krueger said she looks forward to working side-by-side with him during the transition.

The Ada Jenkins Center has stood in Davidson for more than 80 years as a hub for education and community services in northern Mecklenburg County. With services including a free medical clinic, free dental clinic, food pantry, workforce development, child and adult education, and social work case management, we help people in our community create lasting solutions for economic stability.  Last year, we served more than 2,600 individuals and families in Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville.
