    Trevor Owens, Parkway Program Coordinator

    I am so honored to have been here at Parkway.  This is my 13th year.  I am the Program Coordinator of the best kids in the world.  I graduated Appalachian State with a BS in Psychology with a  Concentration in math.  I have worked with kids of all ages in some capacity for 17.5 years.  I also DJ on the side.  I am married to my amazing wife Nicole for 2.5 years.  I have a step daughter, Britt, who keeps the family laughing and sometimes beats me at Mario Kart.  We also welcomed Thomas Kole into the world in March of 2018.  My admiration for parents is at an all time high and my admiration for my wife is even higher.  I am a fan of my family, Mario Kart, Putt Putt, music, and obviously food.  My fav sports teams are APPALACHIAN STATE, Yankees, Panthers, Colts, UNC, and Im not opposed to watching Mixed Martial Arts.  I really do enjoy coming to work.  Im so excited about the adventures we will share in After School.  The best is yet to come.
