In 2003, Jonathan T.M. Reckford had been a successful business executive at some of the nation’s major corporations when he felt a calling to serve others in a deeper way. He left the corporate world behind to become a pastor and now leads the world’s foremost global nonprofit housing organization.
The Habitat for Humanity CEO, Reckford graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 1984. He will deliver the Commencement address at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Spring Commencement.
