Mr. Reid Byrd

I moved from the private industry into teaching in 2008. I worked three years with Stantec doing concept design, planning, and final design on roadway projects. This included working with NCDOT, VDOT, TDOT, FDOT, and private developers. I worked on interchange design, rural roads, bypasses, super street design, site development, subdivision entrances, and layouts for commercial development.

Prior to Stantec I had eight years experience in custom residential design. I completed internships with three local firms while in school and started work with Tyndall Engineering after completing school. Clients included contractors and home owners. I also have design experience with two large tract builders as well as custom kitchen cabinets.

In 2010 I started my own design business, DRB design. I design custom residential homes and additions. This keeps me current on building code, trends in the industry, and building techniques, so that I can continue to enhance the learning environment for my students.

I am a local. I grew up about a mile from the 42/Cleveland School Rd intersection (before there was an I40). I attended Cleveland Elementary and Junior High in the old school building located at the GCAA fields. I have been married for 26 years and have three children. My son is 25 and drives dump trucks for a living. My oldest daughter is 22, graduated from Campbell University, and currently works at IQVIA, a Clinical Research company. My youngest daughter is 20, a sophomore at Campbell University, and is majoring in Kinesiology with plans for Physical Therapy school. My wife is a local as well. She grew up in Four Oaks and is the Associate director of Health Sciences for the Community College system of NC. My wife and I both are graduates of South Johnston High School, are both Christians, professing Jesus Christ as our Savior, and attend Coats Baptist Church in Coats.

In my spare time I like to play golf with my dad and my daughter, build "things", watch Andy Griffith, watch Star Wars, and work in the yard.
