Lancaster, Pa. – The Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County (CAP) today announced that Marquis Lupton has been hired as program coordinator for the Crispus Attucks Community Center (CACC). He succeeds Cheryl Holland-Jones who retired earlier this year.
Lupton’s most recent role was at the PA State Capitol as a Media Analyst. Previously a field producer at CNN, he has extensive experience in communications and broadcasting, and worked as a news anchor and reporter for NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates along the East Coast. He is the founder of TCP Network.
As program coordinator, Lupton will be responsible for daily operations of CACC, and will also assist in event planning, community outreach, fundraising and setting a vision for Crispus Attucks’s future growth.
Working at Crispus Attucks represents a bit of a homecoming for Lupton: He spent several years as a camp counselor at CACC and held his first professional job at CACC – as a youth intervention specialist.
“I am really looking forward to rolling my sleeves up and giving back to the community,” Lupton said.
Lupton holds a master’s degree from Morgan State University (an HBCU) and a bachelor’s degree from Shippensburg University.
