The Filmed Presentation highlights David A. Northern Sr. bidding farewell to his employees, fellow colleagues, and the community.

His never wavering commitment toward the organization is illustrious. His achievements have brought the Housing Authority of Champaign County great pride and satisfaction.

David’s never-ending support for the HACC residents and youth of the community will long be remembered.


“On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, it is an honor and a pleasure to have worked with Mr. Northern for the past 3 years. Under Mr. Northern’s guidance, leadership, and direction he and his staff played a major role in the Housing Authority of Champaign County, meeting all the goals and objectives that were established for the agency. Mr. Northern and staff members were on the front line every single day.

We were able to work through the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue until this pandemic can resolve and everyone is safe. We wish Mr. Northern continued success in Birmingham and also as the incoming President of PHADA. I know he will not leave his fellow colleagues behind when he moves in that illustrious office at the national level, that’s just a start for Mr. Northern.

And to Ms. Lily Walton – it takes someone very special to handle this new role you are moving into. It takes someone extraordinary to handle this outstanding and award-winning agency. The Board and I are pleased to have you continue to move the agency forward without taking a step back and I know you will do everything within your power to continue in that role.

Let me say, thank you, Mr. Northern and Ms. Walton. Thank you for coming to us, we have benefited from this association.”
