Five + years ago, I joined ASAP!’s Board as Treasurer because I wanted to join an organization where I could make a difference. At that time ASAP! was growing from only providing arts education here in Region 12 to developing new programs that also deliver arts programs to those in surrounding communities, often with lesser resources. I’m proud of the financial stability we built at ASAP! and equally proud of bringing arts programs to a wider and more diverse group of kids. I remain convinced there’s an underserved population who lack access to arts education and I look forward to helping ASAP! to address that need.
