DLC has been fortunate to have Davidson College students as board members over the years. Sophomore Ty Cryan stepped up in July of 2021 to join the DLC Board. Ty hails from Burlington, NC, where he spent his childhood boating on the conserved Haw River with his father. According to Ty, “I benefited from conserved land growing up and I’m excited to have the opportunity to give back and support Davidson Lands Conservancy.”
Ty brings a host of skills, a strong commitment, and a delightful personality to represent the Davidson College community, a key DLC partner. Ty is knowledgeable of GIS mapping tools and as well as helping with strategic conservation work will be focused on expanding and strengthening the connections among DLC and the Davidson College community, including students, student groups and faculty. He will also be helping drive forward our DEI initiatives. Ty currently plans to major in Environmental Studies.
