Floyd Newman

Board Treasurer

In 2008, Floyd retired as a Bank field Auditor for over 30 years. He had a daughter Stacy, born with Trisomy 9 Mosaic: a chromosome disorder. She was very small, unable to walk and talk. Stacy began riding at AHEAD with Horses at the age of 3. She became vocal and although could not speak she could let you know what she wanted and what she was thinking. Through Stacy learning how to get on and off the horse, she was ultimately able to get both in and out of bed by herself. Later in life she learned how to feed herself and how to walk with assistance.

Stacy had an older sister that volunteered at AWH and after college worked with Founder Liz Helms, later becoming the Executive director for AWH. It only seemed right for Floyd to volunteer and support AHEAD With Horses helping the disabled youths be all that they can be.
