Carol R. Williams named as new Chair of White Center Arts


This just in from Shelli Park:

White Center Arts’ presence, either under its own auspices for the last two years, or in the form of White Center Arts Alliance or White Center for the Arts, pre-merger, has pursued a vision of a strong arts community in White Center. There have been times of success, and times when things have been a bit challenging. As a volunteer-based non-profit arts organization it has weathered the challenges and endured.

April 4th, 2013 marked another event in the history of White Center Arts. Shelli Park, who was one of six founding artists of White Center for the Arts, resigned as Chair of the Board of Trustees after four years of service. She is excited to pass the baton to a very qualified, enthusiastic and engaged woman, Carol R. Williams.

Carol was unanimously voted in as new Chair on April 4th. Carol is pursuing her PhD in Executive Leadership, specializing in Art as Social Justice for Organizational Development/Worker Training and Leadership Models in Underrepresented Communities.

In 2003, Carol finished her MA in Whole Systems Design in Organizational Development at the Center for Creative Change, Antioch University, Seattle, WA. She specialized in Cultural Competence/Diversity & Authentic Leadership.

Carol is also an artist with extensive history of community involvement. She believes that the only way to deepen WCA’s connection with the community of White Center is through making a deep and lasting connection within the community, establishing a positive presence and strong partnerships.

White Center Arts is pleased to continue its service to White Center, and hopes that the community of White Center will continue to support and embrace WCA in its mission to promote and maintain a dynamic and diverse arts and cultural environment in and for the greater White Center community.
