Doug Smith

You were asked to join the ReInvision Huntingdon board. Why do you feel you are a good fit?
Since I arrived in Huntingdon for college, I’ve felt a drive to give back to the community that made my education possible. I believe I can do this through my skills in social media and marketing, broadening exposure for ReInvision.

What do you bring to the organization?
I have extensive knowledge in social media, marketing, and video production.

What is your profession and why did you choose this profession?
I am currently serving as social media/video intern. I chose this role to broaden my skills in technology and production, and help give the nonprofit more exposure.

What is your favorite volunteering experience? How did/does this experience change you?
Back in Pittsburgh, I volunteered at a school for the blind. It really opened me up to the kinds of change that can be made from face-to-face interaction.

Why do you choose to live/work in Huntingdon?
To me, Huntingdon seems like a place with a lot of potential for revitalization and restoration. As someone who takes pride in their work, I would love to help develop some of those changes.

As an organization if we were to choose ONE project to work on for the year, what do you wish it would it be?
The development of a new, centralized park in town. You can never have too many parks.

How would you like to positively impact our community? What do you want to see happen here? What is your ideal Huntingdon?
Personally, I would love to see a Huntingdon with more parks and open-air markets, where people chat at the shops or while exploring the scenery.
