Got word from the Seattle Mariners that Lara Davis at Youngstown Arts Center-based Arts Corps is one of three Northwest finalists in a recognition contest called “All-Stars Among Us,” being conducted in connection with the upcoming Major League Baseball All-Star Game in St. Louis – and voting is under way now: Here’s the official bio sent by the Mariners regarding Lara:
Lara Davis works as Community Partnership Director for Arts Corps, a non-profit
arts education program in Seattle. Davis has brought her passion and expertise
in community organizing and program development to nonprofits across Seattle
including YWCA youth programs, Seattle Young People’ s Project, AFSC
Cross-Cultural LGBTQ programs, and Pacific Science Center. Since 2003, she has
been an instrumental force at Arts Corps, helping to grow a nascent arts
education program into a nationally recognized model for delivering powerful
learning through the arts to underserved youth.
If Lara wins, she gets to go to the big game in St. Louis and get a turn in the spotlight. You can vote by going to this site – click on the Mariners’ logo and that’ll take you to the page with the three NW contenders, including Lara.
