Grant Paramore joined NCSSM in August 2023 as a Community Coordinator on our Durham campus. A lifelong North Carolinian who hails from Wilmington, he is a recent graduate of Hampden-Sydney College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in philosophy. During his time at Hampden-Sydney, he developed a strong passion for residence life through his experience working as a resident advisor for three years. Grant has also been a Don Lavoie Fellow at the Mercatus Center of George Mason University, and completed a summer internship at the American Institute for Economic Research, where he presented his research on the political philosophy and monetary policy of 14th-century France. Outside of his academic interests, he also has a strong passion for mixed martial arts and Formula 1 competition. Grant is happy to use his residence life experience to make a positive impact as a community coordinator for NCSSM.
