Quadiriah McCullough has been CDS’s operations coordinator since 2015. She’s an Eastern North Carolina native from Snow Hill, which has been home to five generations of relatives. In 2004, as a student at Green Central High School, Quadiriah was the first person in the school’s history to win State 2-A Championships in two different races—the 100- and 200-meter sprints. She went on to run track at North Carolina Central University (NCCU) in Durham, where she studied business management. Quadiriah worked in property management for seven years and then worked for Duke University HR before coming to CDS. She lives in Durham with her husband, Lionel McCullough Jr., and their five children, and is caretaker for her large, extended family. In addition to being Team Mom for one of her son’s basketball teams, Quadiriah is a volunteer coach for Girls on the Run, a nonprofit girls empowerment program. Through her church, she runs a weekly life group and also goes to the NCCU campus to mentor female college students from NCCU, Duke, and UNC–Chapel Hill. Receiving her MBA is one of Quadiriah’s future goals.
