Summer is officially here and NHS Arts Ed Foundation is completing it’s 3rd year supporting the Northwood High School Arts Education department, faculty, and students. We just announced our third set of college scholarships—for a total of $15,000 in 3 years distributed to 15 talented student artists and performers. [Read about this year’s great group of recipients here.]
Take a minute and visit our Patrons/Sponsors page. Many thanks to all the parents, teachers, community members, businesses, and civic organizations that contribute, participate, donate, and support NorthwoodArts! That especially includes three members of our board completing their terms—Secretary Yvette Navarro, Community Liaison Jerry Richardson, and Parent Liaison Diane Damico. Vice-President Crystal Horton and Treasurer Evelyn Shaw are on board again next year (Hurrah!) and will be joined by Dianne Gordon stepping into the secretary’s position, Cynthia Shelby, our new community liaison, and the first of our student board members, Josy Christian from Tri-M (the international music honor society).
Michael Kaiser, president of the JFK Center for Performing Arts, just posted his Prescription for Summer. He mentions summer as the time arts organizations typically have the opportunity to reflect, to listen to audience/membership feedback, and to make future plans.
So send us your thoughts and ideas, areas where we can improve and make a bigger contribution, or attract more folks to work with NorthwoodArts.
