Trent Gilbert was recently named the new Vice President of Enrollment at Richmont. He is a fantastic individual, a hard worker, and he loves to talk about all things Richmont. Recently Trent took time out of his day to answer a few questions about Richmont, Atlanta, and what he likes to do in his free time.
What are you most excited about for Richmont’s future?
Growing enrollment and name recognition at Richmont. This is a place that is making an impact not only on our students lives, but also on the lives of those they touch through their work. As a part of this enrollment growth, we will be able to gain more name recognition for Richmont within both the Chattanooga and Atlanta communities, which will lead to increased interest from students, donors and community involvement. I view it as a cycle that keeps feeding itself.
Why do you love living in Atlanta?
Atlanta is a city of little neighborhoods. I love exploring each neighborhood, finding the local restaurants and hanging out with each different people. I also love all the trees (except during the spring pollen season). Most major cities don’t have nearly as much green space as Atlanta and it makes me feel like I’m not living in a big city.
How do you spend your time when you’re not at Richmont?
I love to spend time with my wife Adrienne and our two rescue dogs, Sara and Hunter. We enjoy hitting the trails for a hike, and we love exploring new restaurants (especially if they have a outdoor seating). My wife and I also love to travel and explore different parts of the country. Our former lives had us on the road quite a bit, so it is in our blood.
