The Jacoby Arts Center in Alton has a new leadership team. A group of fifteen individuals were appointed to the interim board of directors during an organizational meeting last week. Each of the members will serve a six month term, after which they can decide to stay on or step down according to the volunteer Executive Director Ron Abraham.

He says it was important to bring in a group of directors who will bring a new, fresh look to Jacoby.

The interim board consists of President Cora Miller, Vice President Kerry Miller, Treasurer Jason Hill, Secretary Linda Benson and board members Orlando Panfile, Mary Lillesve, Dennis Scarborough, Ed Morrisey, Katy Wills, Sam Stemm, Bonnie Norman, Andy Dykeman, Cynthia Buenger, Dee Kilgo and Will Lane.

Abraham says the group will assist with on going fundraising efforts, examine the previous leadership structure of the center and eventually help develop a business plan for the facility.
