LSC announces leadership changes at Trinity Elms and Trinity Landing

Lutheran Services Carolinas is happy to announce two exciting leadership changes.

Congratulations to Tonya Hilliard, who has been selected to be the executive director of Trinity Elms in Clemmons.

Hilliard has served LSC since 2002 where she began at Trinity Village as a social worker. In 2011, Hilliard became the administrator of Trinity Ridge in Hickory, which replaced the former Lutheran Home-Hickory West.

Tonya led the transition efforts, including a massive one-day move into the newly built Trinity Ridge location.

She is excited about possibilities at Trinity Elms, and is looking forward to learning together with a new team and campus, as well as being able to live closer to family.

We are also happy to announce that Bonnie Skobel has been selected to be the executive director of Trinity Landing, LSC’s new continuing care retirement community in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Skobel was one the first staff members to be hired Trinity Grove, a skilled nursing facility that opened in 2011. She began her career with LSC as a social worker and was named administrator in 2013.

Currently under construction, Trinity Landing is slated to be complete in 2022.

“Lutheran Services Carolinas was an organization-wide 60-year tradition of growing our own leaders,” said LSC President and CEO Ted Goins. “Bonnie was the first applicant when Trinity Grove was under construction, and then served as social worker. LSC uses a career lattice to help our teammates grow in their positions or move to new positions.”

Congratulations to both Tonya and Bonnie!
