A special highlight of the night will be the presentation of the 2021 Arts for Success Leadership Award. Tina Husted, wife of Lt. Governor Jon Husted serves as the event Champion and won the 1st time 2020 Arts for Success Leadership award in February 2020. Mrs. Husted will be presenting this year’s award to the winner. She has also donated a beautiful art piece for the live auction that attendees will not want to miss.
“The stars will be shining bright at the 2021 Arts for Success. With the virtual format of the event, attendance will no longer limit the number of attendees who may participate. The community support of our citizens for the CSC and NC State has been amazing. Our list of partners and friends continues to grow as we work to educate tomorrow’s workforce and help ensure that our businesses have an adequate pool of trained employees,” said Amanda Sheets, Director of Outreach Programs. “I hope to have the entire community join us.”
