Tron Buff

A native of western NC, Tron left the area to earn a BA in History from NC State University and then returned briefly to earn an MA in Higher Education/Teaching from ASU.  He then moved back to Raleigh where he taught history and served as an academic advisor before wisely returning to Boone in 2016. Since his return, Tron has worked as an academic advisor in the Beaver College of Health Sciences (primarily with the Exercise Science program).  During his spare time, he enjoys reading, music and movies. Mostly, though, he prefers to spend time with his wife and dogs. Tron also continues his lifelong quest to find a way to make fall arrive a little earlier and winter last a little longer.
