A Multicultural Community Center is Born

Under the leadership of Executive Director Shane K. Carter, Lincoln Community Center became more vibrant and alive, offering more than 42 programs for people of all ages year-round. Shane took over the position in September 2011. Under his tenure, the Center underwent a complete facelift including building renovations to the foyer, main office, weight room, and basement, as well as the addition of a full-service kitchen and computer lab.

Upon his hiring, Shane implemented a new mission statement: “To provide a facility for the residents of Troy and the vicinity, to engage in educational, social, cultural, and recreational activities. The Center provides opportunities for people of all ages to participate in a wide range of programs that educate and stimulate the public, enhance self-confidence, and promote mental and physical health.”
