A Sad Loss

Richard Monroe, holding Chamber of Commerce Plaque, stands next to Nila chamberlain at the ribbon cutting. Grand Opening Robeson Art Guild, October 28, 2021

It is painful to write that Richard Monroe, a founding Board member of the Robeson Art Guild, had a massive stroke and died this afternoon, March 22, 2022. It is difficult to imagine life without Richard. His love of teaching and his willingness to share and encourage growth and success have been a major factor in the lives of many people in Robeson County. We have never heard a negative comment about Richard from any of his former students. Yes, we did hear a few gripes from the establishment about his impatience with “Hurry up and wait!’ He was a dynamic leader and had great vision for Robeson County. Let’s hope that the seeds of wisdom that he “planted” will grow for our great Robeson County and all of its diverse talents and peoples.
