The YWCA of Asheville is fortunate to have Charlton Owens on staff as our Public Safety Officer. His main responsibility is to manage traffic in our parking lot during busy times. But Charlton takes it upon himself to help in other ways as well, such as educating YWCA families about child safety seats, or assisting with YWCA special events. Charlton is very passionate about his role at the YWCA and we are grateful for his service.
This post was motivated in part by a YWCA member who let us know that he saw Charlton scoop up and protect a two-year-old who had dashed away from his parents and out in front of a car. Great work, Charlton! When we complimented about his alertness, Charlton simply said, “Aw, shucks, it’s just part of my j-o-b.”
