“If I can make a difference in just one life,
then I have given life my best shot.”

— E.D. Arrington

E.D. Arrington is recognized for her volunteer service as a guardian ad litem, is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, is a regular guest speaker and co-host on various local radio, television, and Internet exchange programs, and was the featured poet at the first North Carolina African American Book Festival.  In February 2008, Arrington founded and launched “It’s Time To Read With Me!” an innovative, alternative “read aloud” literacy enrichment program for at-risk youth. 

E.D. Arrington, the fourth of seven children, was raised on a farm in rural Greene County, North Carolina, by her grandparents, Tom and Eva Brown Arrington, until their deaths. A graduate of T.C. Williams High School (school of the Titans) in Alexandria, Virginia, she pursued her formal education at local colleges and universities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.  After a 25-year career at the National Education Association, she retired to a small town 23 miles from her birthplace.
