Staffing Shuffle at SMP
This July we said goodbye to Evan Farnsworth, our longtime Community Outreach Director, as she moved back to her childhood home of Nashville. We miss her already!

In Evan's absence we are reorganizing our staffing a little. Mandy Goldberg will be stepping into the role of Program Director while Meaghan Leferink fulfills the community outreach role. Plus, we'll be adding a new Program Coordinator in September! (Look out for her bio in our next newsletter!) To view our entire roster of staff and teaching artists, head over to our website.
