CMC Executive Director, Jackie Kittrell, was pleased to serve on the Advisory Committee to the Downtown Knoxville Rotary Club, to help select the recipient of the inaugural 2017 Peace Award given by the Rotary to the Beck Cultural Exchange Center. Accepting for the Beck Center was their executive director, Renee Kesler. The presentation was made on May 23 at the Knoxville Museum of Art’s Bailey Hall. But for the beautiful drizzly Spring weather, the ceremony would have taken place in the adjacent Rotary Peace Garden. Presenting the Peace Award for the Rotary were CMC’s Immediate Past Board Chair, Whitney Ray-Dawson, and the inestimable Townes Lavidge Obsorn!
Stay tuned for more information on Beck’s upcoming 8th of August Jubilee at the Downtown Regal Theater!
