Damon Circosta: The Raleigh Goodmons sign another blue-chip recruit

Posted by on Thu, Mar 15, 2012 at 2:08 PM

Damon Circosta rates as a strong defender and clever playmaker who should help the Raleigh Goodmons in a tough league — the N.C. Future Development League — dominated of late by the Carolina Wingers. The Wingers are led by their point man, Paul "Skip" Stam, and by owner-manager Art "His Holiness" Pope.

But Stam can only go to his right, and he looks like he's lost a step or two over the years. Circosta is more versatile, and he's touted as a "next-generation leader" by his coach:

Raleigh, N.C. — Barbara Goodmon, president of the A.J. Fletcher Foundation, announced Thursday that Damon Circosta has been named executive director of the foundation, beginning April 2.

Circosta currently heads the North Carolina Center for Voter Education, a non-profit whose mission is to inform and engage North Carolinians so that they may fully participate in democracy. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona School of Law and a member of the State Bar of North Carolina.

“I am excited to join a North Carolina foundation that is active in the arts, education, public broadcasting and social justice. The Foundation has a proud history of taking a collaborative and inclusive approach to philanthropy, and I am thrilled to be a part of it,” Circosta said.

“Damon understands what the word 'community' means," Goodmon said. "He has a fine record of public service work and brings passion, skill, and energy to our Foundation. North Carolina is in good hands with next-generation leaders like Damon.”

The A.J. Fletcher Foundation was established by Alfred Johnston Fletcher (1887-1979). The Foundation recently moved offices to 909 Glenwood Ave., the former home of A.J. Fletcher. Fletcher’s grandson, Jim Goodmon, is board chair of the Foundation and president and CEO of Capitol Broadcasting Company, which owns WRAL-TV.
