Renee Francis is a Mount Airy native and graduate of North Surry High School. Mrs. Francis went on to earn her Associates in Science degree from Surry Community College, attend the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and graduate from Gardner Webb University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.
