JACKSON ARTS COUNCIL AFTER 12 YEARS
Jackson, Tennessee (February 4, 2013)… Kathi Landon Leatherwood has submitted her letter of resignation after serving for 12 years as executive director of the Jackson Arts Council, effective April 30, 2013.
“It has been a wonderful 12 years during which we have accomplished so many of our goals to help strengthen and connect the arts in Jackson,” stated Leatherwood. “I appreciate the opportunity to serve our community and work with an incredible and supportive board of directors. The timing is right for a change, thanks to the foundation laid over these 12 years, and I believe even better days are ahead.” When asked about future plans, Leatherwood commented, “I will hopefully take a break and then Rex and I plan to enjoy working on some downtown projects together.”
Jan Boud, president of the board, stated, “Kathi has made a tremendous contribution to the arts in Jackson and we hate to see her step aside. We are confident, however, that she will be successful no matter what she does and are thrilled that she and Rex are going to continue to stay in Jackson. We wish her the very best.”
Leatherwood, a Humboldt native and graduate of UT at Knoxville, came to Jackson in December 2000 from Nashville, where she had a fifteen-year career in advertising and marketing and served as Vice-President of Watkins College of Art and Design. She and Rex have been strong supporters of revitalizing downtown Jackson.
