Dear Colleagues,

The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County successfully supports the arts community in this city, and we need to support the Arts Council!

The Arts Council of Winston-Salem is the biggest driver of cultural investment in Forsyth County. With the help of 54 workplace campaigns like our own, The Arts Council collectively raises $2.5 million for the Community Fund for the Arts. The work of the Arts Council supports our community and has a positive impact on our economy. Theater, dance, music, film, visual and other arts, and cultural experiences all play a role in the schools, in the streets, in our performance venues, and in our hearts.

The Arts Council staff and affiliates understand the importance of a well-rounded education and are committed to the education of over 30,000 children in Winston Salem/Forsyth County Schools each year through enriching arts experiences and programs.

Womack named 2015 MLK ‘Building the Dream’ award winner

womack.300x175Associate librarian Hu Womack  has been named a Wake Forest University 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. “Building the Dream” award winner.

The award is traditionally presented to a student and a professor or administrator from both Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) who exemplify King’s qualities and promote diversity within the community. This year, one campus leader and two students were recognized at Wake Forest.

In addition to his work as an instructional librarian, Hu Womack is a faculty fellow for South Hall and an academic adviser. He hosts a Thanksgiving lunch for students unable to travel home for the holiday season, works to create programs that are helpful and engaging to first year students and shares his time and energy supporting and mentoring members of Wake Forest’s LGBTQ community. He is beloved by students, faculty and staff alike for his helpfulness and cheerfulness and his commitment to building a community that values everyone. Womack, who earned his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest in 1990 and his MBA in 2000, has been a full-time employee in the Z. Smith Reynolds library for more than 20 years.
