The Learning Center for the Deaf has welcomed Dwight Martin as its new Director of Development.
Dwight received his MBA from the University of Houston-Victoria, and his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He is currently halfway through the courses required for the Google Data Analytics Professional Certificate.
Prior to joining TLC, Dwight worked for six years at Deaf Pathway Global in Brentwood, TN, where he was the director of strategic operations. His work included writing grant proposals and engaging fundraising efforts as a part of a collaborative team.
In his role, Dwight will oversee the research, writing, and management of local and federal grant work to support TLC’s services, while increasing programmatic growth through fundraising efforts, donor relations, marketing and communications.
Dwight will work within the Advancement Office at TLC, while partnering closely with all programs and services, including Marie Philip School, Walden School, Walden Community Services and the Audiology Clinic.
When not at work, Dwight enjoys spending quality time with his three children and attending their school, sporting, and other events. He also enjoys traveling internationally and experiencing intercultural interactions with the Deaf from around the world.
