ETC, Inc. established the David North Memorial Scholarship for Lighting Technology with a gift to University of North Carolina School of the Arts. ETC’s intention in making this gift is to provide financial need based support for the study of Lighting Technology in memory David A. North who was a longtime ETC employee, North Carolina Gentleman and supporter of The School of Design and Production.
David North loved the theater, but more than that, he loved helping people. He spent most of his career combining those two loves by working as a senior manager in the technical services department at ETC. He worked at ETC for over 20 years. In his latest role he served as the General Manager for ETC’s rigging division.
His career and life was spent in service to others so it is only fitting that a scholarship should be created in his name. He had a deep respect for the North Carolina School of the Arts and the theater electricians it produces. He gave his time and energy to the school, and mentored many interns during the course of his career at ETC. He died in 2017 at the age of 50 after a brief battle with brain cancer. Though his life was short, his legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone he touched.
