He may have over 20 years of law enforcement experience investigating major crimes, homicides, narcotics and working as a patrolman, but Dwight Threet, the director of Campus Police at Sandhills, is mighty scared of spiders. Maybe it is his ‘realness’ that makes him so easily approachable and well-liked at the college. Most call him by his first name and he comfortably interacts with all those he encounters. The feelings are mutual. “It’s like having another family here at Sandhills,” said Dwight. “I love that I get to interact with the Sandhills community, not just as a law enforcement officer. I really enjoy being invited into the classrooms and speaking with the students.” In his spare time, Dwight likes to work out, rehab old homes and cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
