CategoriesLocksmithing & Security Technology
NBSS alumni, students, faculty and staff celebrated with Dave Troiano who retired at the end of January after 15 years as head of the locksmithing department. Dave’s dedication to the school, the students and the locksmithing field are extraordinary and his daily presence at the school will be missed. Dave is shown here with current and past locksmithing students.
NBSS is pleased to welcome Barbara Baker as the new head of the locksmithing department. Barbara is a 2004 graduate of the locksmithing program. Upon graduation, she began working at Action Lock & Key with 1987 NBSS graduate Michael Samra. She continues to work part-time as a commercial hardware locksmith specializing in the installation and service of a wide variety of products as well as residential projects and shop bench work.
In the growing field of powered access control, Barb’s work as an electronic hardware technician—she holds an Electronic Engineering Technology Certificate—provides added value in the NBSS Locksmithing & Security Technology classroom. She is a board member of Massachusetts Locksmiths Association and belongs to the Associated Locksmiths of America. Barbara enjoys teaching and mentoring students in this exciting and ever-evolving field.
