PAS Celebrates 2011 in the Arts
The Performing Arts Society celebrated its 27th Annual Recognition Banquet and Awards Program on Tuesday, May 3, 2011. Retiring Board Members, Nancy & Bruce Foster and Janice & John King, were honored for 6 years of distinguished service to the PAS.
The organization also presented their DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARDS FOR 2010-2011. The roots of the Performing Arts Society are grounded in volunteerism, community service, and a love for the arts. The PAS is fortunate that all of these qualities are in abundant supply at Western Illinois University and in Macomb. The annual banquet is an opportunity for the PAS to honor very deserving people who make a tremendous difference at Western and in Macomb by supporting the PAS and the arts in the community.
The 2011 BCA Award was presented to Paul Kreider for distinguished service to the BCA over his seven-year tenure in the College of Fine Arts and Communication. Kreider’s dedication to the Bureau of Cultural Affairs, a student organization, and his support have greatly strengthened an excellent organization.
