John Carroll

John Carroll is not from Memphis, but fell in love with this place after moving here in 2004. He is the executive director of City Leadership and founder of the local campaigns called Choose901, Teach901, Serve901, and Give901. He and his wife Hayley live in Midtown and share five children. 

“After this awful past week, many of us have something in common with Robert Church — we have the option to leave and the privilege of choice. I am so glad Robert Church chose to stay.”
