Ginger Simms Leadership Fund

EMPOWERING WOMEN Leaders


The North Carolina Outward Bound School (NCOBS) Leadership Semester was the highlight of Ginger Simms’ young and varied life. She thrived on the challenge, quickly proving herself to her crewmates. According to her instructors, “Ginger absolutely shined as a leader, was quick to learn technical skills and systems, and applied her own excitement into motivation for the group. She was incredibly compassionate and reflective, helping inspire others to keep pushing themselves, and keep finding joy in the course.”

Ginger’s family and friends created an enduring tribute to her spirit, drive and determination, in the form of a fund focused on helping others profit from this incomparable experience.

I have grown a lot since day one of course...for the better. I am now a more confident person and I know how to communicate better. I have a new sense of adventure and a willingness to try new things. It has been a life-changing trip that I will never forget. I'm excited to go home and transfer what I've learned to my life there.
