New Library Employee

Hello everyone, my name is Eric Martin and in addition to joining the ranks of Staff/Faculty at S.C.C. I am also currently a student. If all goes well I should be getting my Associates in 2013. When not at work or in school, I watch my baby boy, Samuel, who turns 1 in October!

I was born and raised the Davenport Quad Cities.                 

I am currently in the United States Navy Reserves as a Gunner’s Mate Second Class, and should be up for retirement very shortly, so I’m excited about that! I have done two tours in Kuwait.
