Dot Colson is a self-professed “numbers person,” whether it’s considering sales figures on an Excel spreadsheet or a double coupon off Tide detergent. A part-time project manager in the ﬁnance department at Denny’s Corporation in Spartanburg, she is also a full-time coupon aﬁcionado. (Just ask her about the latest bargains she snagged at the grocery store.)
After sustaining a T-12 injury in a boating accident in 2003, Dot discovered she could make an impact on other people with spinal cord injuries. In addition to volunteering as the association’s treasurer since 2005, she leads a local Breeze group, visits individuals with new injuries, and serves on the Spartanburg Mayor’s Committee for People With Disabilities. She and her husband, Billy, are the parents of two grown children and are quite enjoying their empty nest.
