Spotlight on Service: J.D. Peace | Archdale/Trinity Serco Club

February 27, 2018 0


J.D. Peace was born and raised in Trinity, NC. His roots run deep in this small town of less than 7,000 residents nestled just south of High Point off Interstate 85. It wasn’t a hard decision to get involved in the community, after all his family has lived here for generations and giving back just seemed like the right thing to do.

J.D. is President of the Archdale-Trinity Serco Club.
