By Kat Ford
The Bascom: A Center for the Visual Arts is pleased to announce the addition of six new members to its Board of Directors. Volunteers are a valued part of The Bascom family and it is with the most sincere appreciation that the organization thanks members of the community who lend their time, talents, and leadership to direct The Bascom’s future. Board Chair Bill Reeves said, “We are extremely fortunate to have attracted six new outstanding directors from the greater Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. Each new director offers unique talents and experiences from professional pursuits and prior board experiences. Planned rotation and the orderly addition of new board directors is invigorating for any organization. The Bascom is well positioned for continued success as a vital visual arts center for the region.” The newest members of The Bascom’s Board of Directors are Myron Mall of Memphis, TN and Highlands, NC; Tim Hughes of Charleston, SC and Highlands, NC; Sandy Killion of Birmingham, AL and Highlands, NC; Kathy Young of Atlanta, GA and Cashiers, NC; Heath Massey of Highlands, NC; and Ann Wrobleski of Charleston, SC and Cashiers, NC. With gratitude, The Bascom would also like to thank our retiring board members, including past Board Chair Mike Campbell, past Board Treasurer Mark Quick, and members Bill Mathews, Irv Welling and Bill Broyles. During their leadership, they were an instrumental part of The Bascom’s success and The Bascom’s 2019 Strategic Planning Initiative, which was awarded pro bono by The DeVos Institute of Arts Management. 2020 surely looks to be an exciting year for The Bascom, due in large part to its collective leadership, both past and present.
