Change is never easy. When the Greater Cincinnati Alliance for Arts Education learned that Willie would be moving from us, we were sad to lose such an impactful member of the Cincinnati Arts community. However, we are thrilled for the adventures headed Willie’s way, and we thank Willie for all the work and effort he has poured into our organization and the community.
When asked about his experience with GCAAE, Willie stated:
“It’s been an honor and a pleasure working with GCAAE and helping to advance the mission of arts education and arts advocacy in the Greater Cincinnati area. Special thanks to the co-chairs and the executive committee for giving me the opportunity to connect with such a vibrant arts scene throughout the Cincinnati region. While I’m thrilled to explore all the Pacific Northwest has to offer, saying goodbye is always bittersweet.”
The 2019-2020 season will now be chaired by Becky Spiewak of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Jemannie Severson Luong (Cincinnati Opera) and Jared O’Roark will as return as chairs. GCAAE is excited for the leadership to come from this dynamic trio.
