ATLANTIC CITY â€“ Christina Noble, the project manager of the award-winning Stories of Atlantic City, has been named Atlantic City’s new youth services director.
Mayor Marty Small made the announcement last week.
“Christina is a graduate of Howard University and has held several influential positions in the area,” Small said in a statement last week. “She is a world traveler and is passionate about Dance and the Arts. I can’t wait to see the direction she leads the Youth Services Division.”
Since 2020, she has guided the Stories of Atlantic City, a collaborative nonprofit project focused on telling restorative, untold stories about the resort city and its people. She worked with Stockton University students and community partners to create online restorative narratives stories about the city.
Noble led Stories of Atlantic City to the 2021 Engage Local News Award at the annual NJ News Commons Excellence in Local News Awards, a network of nearly 400 news organizations and freelancers across New Jersey.
“This was my full-circle moment,” the Egg Harbor Township native told Front Runner New Jersey last month, who had also lived in Washington, D.C. “I jumped into the role with no prior traditional journalism experience, but with a passion for story-gathering/sharing and an eagerness to learn. In less than a yearâ€™s time, I was recognized for my work on the project.”
Noble is also an international performer (dancer), instructor, and choreographer having taught, performed, and directed for over 15 years. She has produced shows and events, led creative projects, and headed youth programs locally, nationally and overseas. She has also worked closely with at-risk youth teaching them dance and acting as a mentor.
Noble is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in American Studies with a concentration in Africana Studies.
