"I consider myself to be a life-long student, and at CTAC I am learning to appreciate a diversity of art through gallery exhibits, classes, and performances. Arts access to all is important to me, and working particularly with our education outreach efforts gives me the opportunity to help move forward the CTAC mission to Inspire and Enrich Lives through the Arts."
