About the Potters

Rsz sheilaandgrandson
Sheila Potter, an Appalachian State University employee, will be the owner of the second ABAH house. Sheila is one of three daughters born to Boyd and Jewel Potter. She is a descendant of the original Potter family for which Pottertown, NC is named. Sheila's new Habitat home will be located in Pottertown on property that has been in her immediate family for over 100 years.  
“It means the world to me to build on my own land.  I can still be close to my mom, but the privacy and independence of having my own home is such a blessing.”  Sheila is most excited about having her own bathroom and having a place for her grandson to come spend the night.   
Sheila has been an Appalachian State University employee since 2016.  Prior to that she worked at Hospitality Mints and Mabel Elementary School.
