Nick Plaugher has been the communications project coordinator since the spring of 2022 and will finish his term with CAST this month.

Nick is planning to move home to West Virginia and pursue remote work options or start a career in his home state. He looks forward to continuing to practice photo and video work and traveling.

Your growth while working at CAST can be exponential if you always try to learn and do just a little more.
