Trask Land Company President and Board of Governors member, Raiford Trask III, is the chair for the Board of Governors Military Affairs Task Force. Recently, the UNC Systems created The University of North Carolina Partnership for National Security to support active duty military in seeking higher education. According to their website, this partnership includes targeted degree programs, research and technical support, relevant pre-deployment education courses, and many others that are designed to support service members and their families. Trask Land Company is proud to support the UNC Serves program. Our development, Southbridge, is also a proud supporter of the UNC Serves program. The Southbridge community is located in Sneads Ferry, NC and is home to a large portion of military personnel.
In May, Trask Land Company created the Trask Land Company Champions of Freedom scholarship with the University of North Carolina Wilmington to benefit active duty marines and their families while seeking higher education at UNC Wilmington’s main campus and extension campuses. Our team is humbled by the opportunity to provide a helping hand to a group of people who serve our country every day.
