My name is Norman “Norm” Branch. I am the CEO for Positive People Association, a non-Profit community organization that promotes education and health skills through various forms of art. I graduated from Marshall University with a Regents B.A degree with a double minor in psychology and marketing. Married to Leah Brown-Branch for eleven years.
I founded Positive People Association with my mother Lanita C. Hatcher in the Fairfield West Communities of Huntington, WV. Our first program consist of theater arts projects, with at-risk youth and young adults. In 1998 we organized our first Salute to Carter G. Woodson, Ph.d. and Talent Celebration. Every year since we have produced and performed a play throughout the Tri-State. Stars R Us Theater Troupe was formed bring diversity and skills of theater. We have created documentary film about social issues. My passion is for the Arts to tell a story to inspire and uplift, encourage someone to live, love and laugh. To motivate someone to become the next generation of Positive thinkers and believers.
In my spare time, I train youth and adults, in weight lifting and physical fitness. My wife and I participate in OCR events. We have done 2 Spartan Sprints and a Warrior Dash.
