Employee Spotlight - Website

The City of Durant is pleased to announce our Employee Spotlight for September 2023.September Employee Spotlight 2023

Dana Trent is the coordinator for Ron Cross Senior Activity Center (RCSAC). She has been employed by the City of Durant for approximately three years and formerly held the roles of assistant grant writer and accounts receivable clerk. As assistant grant writer, she aided in writing grants that funded the senior center’s nutrition transportation bus, food pantry and emergency generators.

“I have found that Dana is an organizer and loves working with our senior population,” said Interim City Manager Rick Rumsey. “Every time I walk into the senior center, everyone is smiling and having a great time. Dana has been a big part of our center’s success.”

“I have always enjoyed senior citizens,” said Trent. “They have wonderful stories to tell.” Prior to joining the City, she possessed over two decades of experience in social services and community outreach.

Trent has brought renewed excitement to the center since taking over, and recently hosted a Senior Prom at the site. “I love to see the smiles on the seniors’ faces,” she said. “To hear their laugh. To see the glimmer of excitement in their eyes. And of course all the hugs!!!”

When she’s not planning events or working with seniors, Dana enjoys spending time with her kids and nine grandkids.
