The Town of Tryon’s management team is tasked with the coordination and oversight of town-delivered services. Their board is made up of 12 members who focus on the success and development of downtown Tryon. Henderson was the only full-time paid position. There is no set timeline for finding her replacement. 


Zach Ollis, Town Manager, spoke glowingly of her time here. “Paige was a valuable asset to the Town of Tryon. We are really going to miss her very much. We were lucky to have her here. She did a great job with the town’s branding and bringing the three boards, the Town Council, the TDDA, and the Tourism Board together. She was a great employee and the town of Boone can expect the same.”
