Meet Trinity Center's Leadership!
Featured this issue: Dave Smith, Maintenance Supervisor
Dave was born in Wappinger Falls, New York. At age 7 he moved to Dryden, New York where he lived until he moved to North Carolina. After he graduated from high school, Dave attended Fulton Montgomery Community College and received an associate degree in graphic arts. He worked in the painting industry for four years. He started his own lawn and landscaping business in the warm months and worked at a ski-resort in the winter. During all of this, he was a volunteer firefighter for 20 years and an EMT for 15 of those 20 years. He moved to North Carolina in 2002 to be closer to his parents and his sister who had moved to this area several years earlier.

Dave currently lives in Newport, NC, and has worked at Trinity Center since 2002. Dave was promoted to Maintenance Supervisor in September 2019. Dave says, "It's a pleasure to be able to work at Trinity Center. The staff is friendly and we have a family-like atmosphere." He also says he has always liked working outside and Trinity Center offers him "plenty of grounds and buildings to keep up." Congratulations to Dave - we appreciate the great job he is doing!

Sound to Sea - School Dates Available!
Trinity Center's Sound to Sea Environmental Education Program welcomes schools from mid-August through mid-May. Students who experience the Sound to Sea program explore the five habitats on our barrier island: the Salt Marsh, Sound, Beach, Maritime Forest and Fresh Water Pond. All classes are taught with a hands on, experiential focus and meet the NC science curriculum goals. Each habitat group of 12 or less students will be with a qualified instructor for all classes. We typically offer a three day program; however, there are limited day program dates available. All school group sizes are welcome as Sound to Sea can accommodates school groups as large as 96 students to as few as 10. 

We currently have dates available for the 2019-2020 school year. If you know a teacher or school that might be interested, please have them call today!
