PAS New Board Members Meet for Orientation
The Performing Arts Society Class of 2015 met for an Orientation at the home of Al and Sue DeRoos, Class of 2013. Following the orientation the new board members met with the PAS Board Class of 2013 and Class of 2014 board members.
The PAS welcomes an excellent new class and looks forward to many good works. The PAS board is a working board. They plan, organize, and host 4 major events every year: Diamonds and Denim in August; Beerfest in October; the Gala and Silent Auction in November; and the Wine Tasting in February.
The Board also oversees a budget of approximately $90,000 per year, 85% of which is returned to the community through the sponsorship of the Youth Performing Arts Series, the WIU Summer Music Institute Scholarships, funding for the BCA, and the PAS Academic Support Program Grants that provide arts initiatives for the university and community.
Class of 2015 Board members are the following: Jill and Ben Beck; Jeff Brown; Nancy and Dan Colvin; Kelly and Eric Jameson; Tina and Sterling Saddler; Lori Baker-Sperry and Chad Sperry; and Kathy and Mike Waters. Welcome aboard Class of 2015.
