The Heart of Danville is excited to announce that Nick Wade will step in as Interim Director, starting Monday, October 3.
Joining the Heart in February, after a brief stint in the music industry, Wade is excited and grateful for this opportunity to step up and lead the Heart of Danville. In only a few short months with the Heart, Wade has revamped both the weekly newsletter and the monthly merchant newsletter. He has also improved the Heart's social media presence, continued the planning of great events, and increased coverage in the local press.
"I am thrilled to help lead the Heart of Danville into our 31st year," said Wade. "Bethany executed many great projects and initiatives during her four years as director. I look forward to continuing and building upon the groundwork she laid."
To help Wade out, the Heart has hired Mary Trollinger as Temporary Project Manager. Trollinger has lived in Danville for most of her life. She graduated from Danville High School in 2007, Centre College in 2011 with a B.A. in Religion and Art History, and Vanderbilt Divinity School in 2014 with a Master of Divinity degree and certificate of Religion and the Arts in Contemporary Culture. In 2015, she worked as a photographer for Everything But The House in Lexington, Ky., and established her own line of cards and postcards featuring original macro nature photography and photos of Danville landmarks. Mary and her sister Elizabeth have an informal "pet-sitting" business, and they have enjoyed taking care of pets in Danville since 2003.
"Mary and I are excited to see what the next few months hold for us and the Heart of Danville," said Wade.
