New Managing Director Announcement

A note from Sue Adams 
18 years ago when the Arts Academy was founded I offered to add the administration to my church hours.  Most know that as the Academy grew, the need for full-time administration grew significantly.  We added two part-time positions to help alleviate some of this work, but the need was still there.

Even though the weight of the extra position has been heavy, I have absolutely loved building the Academy and getting to work with the impressive Arts Academy staff as well as creating a nurturing environment for our students and families.

I was extremely happy when St. Peter’s Vestry approved moving forward and creating a paid full time Managing Director position for the Arts Academy.  A small Personnel Committee conducted a local search and received approximately ten applications. The end result actually brought them to someone who knows the Arts Academy, has personally witnessed the benefits of the Arts Academy and is eager to be part of its future. That person is Kirsten Burrall.

Kirsten will formally start at the end of August, but will begin gleaning information throughout the summer.  We could not be more excited for St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy’s future. Welcome, Kirsten!
