Description

On Wed., Feb. 12 from 11:30am-1pm at the Westmark Sitka – Executive Director Roger Schmidt spoke at the Chamber Luncheon about Sitka Fine Arts Camp being awarded a $115K Grant and gave updates on SFAC events, including the Pink Floyd Tribute concert, the “People Will Say We’re In Love” concert & the upcoming production of Pirates of Penzance. Being questioned by members of the audience, Schmidt said that, regarding this summer’s Fine Arts Camp registration, there are still a few slots available in most age groups.

Schmidt has been the Executive Director of SFAC since 2000. During this time, the summer program has grown from a two-week camp serving 40 adolescent students to a ten-week program serving 1,000 students ages five to adult.

In 2010, he negotiated the donation of the historic Sheldon Jackson School which had closed its doors in 2007. He has overseen the restoration of the campus by harnessing the support of thousands of volunteers and donors.

Under Roger’s leadership, the Camp has grown to include a year-long arts advocacy program that offers a performing arts series, a statewide teacher training institute, after school art classes for all ages, and a vibrant young performer’s theater program. In addition, the Campus has become an important part of the economic future of Sitka as a home for many conferences and conventions.
