Leslie Knight joined NCSSM as a Community Coordinator for the Durham campus in August 2023. Leslie grew up around the Durham area and attended school just a few miles from NCSSM’s campus before moving to Boone, NC, to earn her bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in Secondary Education. During her time in Boone she worked in residence life. She came to NCSSM to return to her passion for residence life and working with high school students in residence halls to build strong communities and relationships that will last a lifetime. When she isn’t working, you can often find Leslie slacklining on a nice day, in a comfy chair with her nose in a book, singing along to musical soundtrack, or enjoying a Durham Bulls game with her family and friends during baseball season.
