Proof Positive: Christina Cultural Arts Center Student Success Story
David Hamilton

"As a teenager growing up in Wilmington, CCAC helped me unlock worlds and ideas I may have never discovered. I grew leaps and bounds through the power of discovery. I proudly attribute my ability to navigate and find success as a soldier in Iraq and as a manager/producer working alongside award-winning musicians to my experience at Christina Cultural Arts Center."
