The Trustees

The original funding for a number of Surry’s trust funds were donated by well-respected citizens for specific purposes. The Trustees of the Trust Funds are volunteer citizens who serve in a fiduciary capacity on behalf of the citizens of the Town to manage the money entrusted to them. This web page is dedicated to all of the past trustees who have served with integrity in carrying out their role in Surry’s history.
