DBT40 Honoree: Logan Herring
Title: Executive Director
Workplace: Kingswood Community Center Inc.
Raised in Wilmington’s West Center City neighborhood, Logan Herring knows that other people helped guide him to success. Now he wants to do the same for others. As the executive director of the Kingswood Community Center (KCC) in northeast Wilmington, Herring is serving community members of all ages with diverse, comprehensive programming for a better future.
But the KCC isn’t Herring’s only focus these days in the Riverside neighborhood. Herring is leading two other organizations as well. The first is REACH Riverside, which is aimed at a holistic revitalization of Riverside by replacing existing public housing units with 400 units of high-quality mixed-income housing. The second is The Warehouse Project, a co-working facility that allows program and service providers for teens to gather under one roof and network to collaborate, integrate and share the responsibility of ensuring that teens in the city of Wilmington are ready for the next step in life.
