Local Talent: Chris Gibbs


This week’s Local Talent has been around. Before landing in Greensboro to pursue a degree in landscape architecture, Chris Gibbs worked as a captain and crew member aboard private yachts, gallivanting around the world with the rich and famous, albeit as the help. Chris graduated from NC A&T University in May, but his plan to skip town for a life on fishing boats was sidelined when he realized he couldn’t live without his very special Bass. Penny Bass, the local talent who Chris says, “changed everything in my life and makes me a better person every day.”  Well, here he is Penny, down on one knee, sparkling ring in hand…. “Marry me, Penny Bass. I want to keep you forever.”
