Board of Directors
Executive Director, Why Arts?
As director of WhyArts? for the past 15 years, a non-profit arts organization which provides arts opportunities to underserved populations, Carolyn has become familiar with the needs of individuals throughout the community. WhyArts? works with organizations and schools serving adults and youth with disabilities, the senior population, and at risk youth and families in primarily north and south Omaha. Carolyn serves on the boards of Holy Name Housing Corporation, Nebraska Writers Collective, Urban Abbey Advisory Board, and is active in First United Methodist Church. Because nutrition education and access to healthy foods are important Carolyn looks forward to working with No More Empty Pots to further the mission and vision.
