Theresa Beebe-Novotny and Lisa Muldrew were recently named as the two new board members on the Statesboro Arts Council Board of Directors. They will both serve four-year terms on the board.


“These ladies bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Statesboro Arts Council Board,” said board chair, Barry Turner. “We look forward to their input on the council.”


Theresa Beebe-Novotny is a Statesboro resident and is currently serving as director of testing services for Georgia Southern University. Beebe-Novotny is a strong supporter of the visual arts. “I love to visit the local art galleries. My husband and I enjoy attending as many art gallery openings as our schedule will allow.” She is no stranger to other art forms, having studied music and dance throughout her childhood.


Lisa Muldrew, also a Statesboro resident, is currently the choral director at Statesboro High School. She is an avid supporter, performer, and director of the performing arts. She has appeared and directed numerous local performances including Emma’s Holiday Follies, Grease, The Sound of Music, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Steel Magnolias, Highlights of the Music of Johnny Mercer, and Disney’s High School Musical.


“We have already been supported by both of these ladies at the Averitt Center for the Arts. In turn, to serve on the board of directors is very commendable,” said Tim Chapman. Chapman is the executive director of the Averitt Center for the Arts.


In addition to these two, the current board membership also includes president Barry Turner, vice president Carol Thompson, treasurer Mary Ann Newton, secretary Dawn Oliver, past president Roger Doty and members Gail Ansley, Connie Averitt, Frank D’Arcangelo, Carolyn Hobbs, Delia Mobley, Ricky Nessmith, Phillip Tremble, and Cleve White.
