Who am I?

Alphonso Short (Coach Short) was born in New York, lived his formative years in North Carolina and as adult lived in Washington DC, Maryland, Mississippi and presently, in North Carolina.  He has been married to his bride, Anissa Conard Short since 1998, and in his spare time he enjoys music, reading and travels to the Caribbean. 

Coach Short obtained a BBA from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte (1986), a BBA and MBA from Word of Truth Bible College (2007 & 2009) and became Certified as Christian Life Coach in 2021.  In addition to his over 30 years of Federal Government employment, Coach Short has dedicated his life to service, specifically to areas that serve to build up men and children.  Whether serving as tutor and mentor through the Adopt a School program, coaching boys’ basketball through his city’s Parks and Recreation programs, volunteering with the Boys and Girls Club, or serving in various leadership positions in ministry, he has been committed to making a difference. 

Coach Short has been recognized for his work as a volunteer from various citywide organizations (1999 to 2000).  He has facilitated a Junior Golf Camp for boys that not only taught the game but emphasized the importance of core values.  Most recently, Coach Short serves as Board Chair of two non-profit organizations, Fascinate-U Children’s Museum & Greater Life of Fayetteville, both of whom serve children and are located in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
