MARTINSVILLE – More than 50 people attended Piedmont Community Services’ dedication Monday of its building at 24 Clay Street in honor of Jim Tobin, who retired earlier this year after 26 years as executive director.

Greg Preston, who succeeded Tobin as executive director, called Tobin dedicated, humble, a person “who doesn’t like a lot of spotlight.”

Charles Wagoner, Piedmont board chair, said Tobin has “done it all.” Tobin knew how to deal with the board, other people and the community, Wagoner said. “…He cares about people.”

For example, whenever raises were being considered, if employees weren’t going to get a raise, Tobin didn’t want one, Wagoner said.

Tobin did an “outstanding job” as executive director, Wagoner said.

Tobin said he was honored and “truly touched.”
