Board of Directors

As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, the Purple Warrior Foundation is overseen by a board of directors. The board is a diverse group of individuals who share a common vision of providing education and community service to the members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. 


Taylor Wilnoty, Founder/Chair

In 2013, Taylor Wilnoty founded the Purple Warrior Foundation with the goal of raising awareness and providing education about Epilepsy. This disease and knowledge about the disease is something that is close to Taylor's heart as her brother lived with Epilepsy in his short 24 years of life. Taylor and her family keep Dennie's memory alive through the work of the Purple Warrior Foundation and their participation in local and national events.
