High Point Parks & Recreation welcomes Quanté Speight, our new Recreation Supervisor! Quanté grew up in Scotland Neck, in eastern North Carolina, as a “parks and rec kid.” He earned a degree from North Carolina A & T State University in Recreation Administration and has a M.A. in Health and Physical Education. He also received a M.S. degree from Ohio University in Athletic Administration. As Recreation Supervisor, Quanté will be supervising all our recreation centers and their programs. He will also lead all adult and youth Athletic programs and oversee outdoor Athletic facilities and field rentals.
“Once I understood the impact of parks and recreation on the community, I decided to study it in college and then make it my career to serve others,” said Quanté. Actually, quite a few “parks and rec kids” grow up to pursue jobs in this field of work and we feel very fortunate to have someone with Quanté’s education and experience join our team of professionals. It’s great to have you on board, Quanté!
