Dylan W. Greenwood

Winston-Salem, North Carolina

I was born and raised in Winston-Salem, NC. Growing up in the area, I was heavily involved in the community as an Eagle Scout and graduate of R.J. Reynolds High School. Following graduation from Reynolds, I attended college at Virginia Tech. A proud Hokie, I went on to earn two degrees with honors in Political Science and Economics and became a Rhodes Scholarship nominee.

I returned home to attend law school at Wake Forest University, where I was the Symposium Editor for the Journal of Law and Policy. Upon graduation I was inducted into the Order of the Barristers for excellence in courtroom advocacy due to my extensive Moot Court experience on the ABA National Appellate Advocacy and National Moot Court teams.

I am an avid golfer and clay target shooter and look forward to giving back to the community that has given so much to me.
