Community Spotlight: Derrick Reed

Meet Derrick Reed! Derrick is a previous Riverside resident, community barber, and owner of Trust Renovations and Remodeling. Derrick has been committed to the betterment of Riverside for decades and is now part of the team building the new Imani Village.
When asked about his thoughts for the future of Riverside, Derrick said, “In years we’re gonna look back and say, ‘we did something great, and we’re glad we did it!’ It won’t be the same Riverside. It won’t be that you know. It will be something new. It’ll be something that kids on the bus can be proud to be dropped off in front of.”
