Al & Ginni Lineberry
2013 Citation Award Dinner Chairs
NCCJ has named community leaders Al and Ginni Lineberry as co-chairs of its 2013 Brotherhood/Sisterhood Citation Award Dinner. The Lineberrys say that NCCJ’s mission of encouraging respect for all is central to their own values. “It’s everything I believe in about the worth and dignity of every human being,” says Ginni Lineberry. Adds Al, “Without communication, there is no peace. Going to ANYTOWN [NCCJ’s signature program for high school students on respecting diversity] was like watching a shade open. I fell in love with the kids and their energy.”
The Greensboro couple has been active in the business, human services, and faith communities for decades. Ginni Lineberry serves as a volunteer fund administrator and fund manager for a number of nonprofit organizations including Children’s Home Society of North Carolina, Guilford Battleground Company, Women’s Aid (now Family Services), United Youth Care Services and the Junior League.
Al Lineberry Jr. has served as a consultant for Service Corporation International, Inc., The Lineberry Group, Inc., Hanes-Lineberry Funeral Homes, and Westminster Gardens, Inc. His volunteer service with many state, local civic, and business organizations includes most recently serving as immediate past president of Greensboro Rotary, secretary of the board of trustees at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University, chairman of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and trustee of The Center for Creative Leadership.
The Lineberrys both serve in leadership positions with First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. They have raised two daughters — Virginia, who died in 2008, and Helen Houser (Trey Houser III) — and are proud grandparents of Hannah and Abby Houser.
