Kimberly Koller-Jones, MAAA ’13, elected to Pennsylvania Humanities Council board of directors

Congratulations to Kimberly Koller-Jones, M.A.A.A. ’13, one of five newly elected members to the Pennsylvania Humanities Council (PHC) board of directors.

“The PA Humanities Council is energized to move vigorously forward at a time when the humanities speak to every part of the human person in addressing the need for beauty, truth, and purpose in the world,” said Persico, board chair. “The new board members bring great enthusiasm and experience to an already accomplished and dedicated group of directors.”

Koller-Jones is the executive director of the Hoyt Center for the Arts in New Castle, PA. She is also the president of the New Castle Blueprint Communities Council, secretary of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, secretary of the Lawrence County Land Bank, and a board member of the Education Committee for Erie Arts & Culture. She received a B.F.A. from Seton Hill University and her M.A. in arts administration from Goucher College.

PHC is governed by a 24-seat board of directors, which is made up of both elected individuals and governor appointees. Currently 23 members serve on the board with backgrounds in business, law, education, philanthropy, government, arts, and culture.
