Huron Valley Council for the Arts

 
Leah has played in integral role in the organization’s growth. During her tenure, it doubled in size financially and tripled its outreach to the communities it serves. Leah has helped students blossom during the HVCA’s internship program and art center classes, and helped develop programs for special needs participants so they can communicate through music and fine art.
 
Working closely with communities and local Downtown Development Authorities, Leah has produced award-winning public programs and performances that have helped build a sense of place and purpose for residents. The most impressive aspect of Leah’s work is that she has accomplished this all as a part-time employee.
