Meet Amos L. Quick, III

Who Is Amos Quick, III?

Amos Lewis Quick, III has spent his entire life living in North Carolina, and most of it in Greensboro. He was born and raised in Greensboro, the oldest child of three raised by his mother, Juanita.   Representative Quick was educated at James B. Dudley High School and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (Psychology); and is an ordained minister and Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in High Point, NC.
Representative Quick has an extensive history in youth development work and has served as the Executive Director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro; a family advocate for Guilford Child Development; a program coordinator for the Black Child Development Institute of Greensboro; and, the founder of the Martin Luther King Jr. Violence Prevention Program aimed at teaching youth mediation skills to prevent violence.  He has also served as a radio personality on both WJMH and WQMG radio stations, and as the community affairs director for the local affiliate of Entercom Broadcasting.
After losing a close election to become a member of the Guilford County Board of Education in 2000, Representative Quick worked to gain the support of the community and won his second attempt to be elected to the school board in 2004. In 2005, he was elected by his peers to serve as Vice-Chairman of the Guilford County Board of Education – a post he would hold for eleven years until the end of his tenure on the school Board.  Representative Quick was re-elected to the Guilford County Board of Education in 2008 and 2012, both times running without opposition.
Amos ran for the Fifty-Eighth District seat in the North Carolina House in 2016. His years of hard work and his proven leadership ability led him to win the Democratic primary.  He went on to win the general election, and was sworn in to the seat in January, 2017.
While in the State House, Amos has been blessed to climb the leadership ladder. He was elected Vice-Chair of his Freshman class, and was chosen to serve on six committees:  Appropriations; Appropriations, Capital; Commerce and Job Development; Education K-12; Homelessness, Foster Care and Dependency; and, Judiciary III.   Not satisfied with resigning himself to the fact that Democrats are now in the minority in the House, Amos is determined to fight to make a difference and has introduced 117 bills with the mindset: “Show the people the laws you would pass as the majority.”
In addition to loving his ministry and his work for North Carolina families in the State House, Representative Quick absolutely loves being the father to the two best daughters a father could have, Jasmine and Raven, both adults.
