Farewell & Bon Voyage!

Laurel Withers, who spearheads our development office and who has faithfully served Playwrights Project for twenty years, will unfortunately be departing from the organization at the end of April to enjoy her much deserved retirement. Beginning as a volunteer back in 1996, Laurel has fulfilled multiple roles as Playwrights Project has grown over time. A gifted communicator and an impeccable event coordinator with a warm heart and passion for arts and education advocacy, Laurel has been an indispensable asset to Playwrights Project time and time again. Her sweet, hardworking spirit will be greatly missed. We congratulate her as she begins this new phase of life.

Thank you, Laurel, for your many years of service!

Welcome aboard, Kendrick Dial!

We would also like to welcome new staff member, Kendrick Dial, an actor, singer, social worker, voiceover artist, spoken word poet and veteran. Kendrick joins us as part of a fellowship sponsored by The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit organization that serves veterans of all ages. As part of his fellowship, Kendrick will be assisting us through August with our programs in schools and communities.
