Bye Ashley. Hello Janice.

It seems like such a long time since young Ashley Johnson joined our team as an intern back in 2007.  Since then she has served as a technician, stage manager, production manager, producer, founding team member of Creative Endeavors Workshop and finally our Events Coordinator back in 2009 (is that right!).  Ashley helped develop and launch our Volunteer Service Program.  She literally wrote the Facilities Handbook.  She has also formalized our rental contract and invoicing process.  She's a gem.  Why all the praise?  Well, the time has come for her to move on from Athens.  We will miss her terribly, but wish her all the best!

However it's not all bad: Janice Paxson Evans has joined the ranks at ARTS/West. You may have seen Janice as an actor with Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble, a mom volunteering at West Elementary, or a worker bee selling paw paw products for Integration Acres at the Paw Paw Fest. Her juggling act has just expanded to include the Events Coordinator position previously held by the inimitable Ashley Johnson. Therefore if you’re looking to rent space at ARTS/West for your event or performance, Janice will now be the one to help you make that happen.
