TR Employee Named Art Educator of the Year

Congratulations to our very own Jackie White! The Sacramento Arts & Business Council (Sac ABC) named her as Arts Educator of the Year at their annual Interlude to the Season, an award reception that celebrates the arts in the Sacramento region.

 

White serves as Director of the Arts and Career Education Department in Twin Rivers, where she has been instrumental in expanding visual and performing arts throughout the school district, including:

  • Integrating the arts in every K-12 classroom
  • Hiring 21 full time art teachers
  • Establishing a residency program that provides direct contact with teaching artists for all 5th grade students
  • Increasing the number of schools served by the Link Up art program

The Arts Educator of the Year award was one of 12 given at the Jan. 25 arts gala event by Sac ABC. Founded in 1987, the organization celebrates companies, organizations and individuals who have made meaningful contributions to support the region's arts and cultural assets.
