Volunteer Spotlight

This month we celebrate Kelsey Mackley in our volunteer spotlight! Kelsey is at recent Bowling Green State University graduate. She studied Visual Communication Technology with specializations in print and interactive media. Kelsey grew up on the south side of Toledo for the first 15 years of her life before moving with her family to Waterville. In 2017 Kelsey joined The Arts Commission team as a volunteer. "Volunteering with The Arts Commission allows me to use my passion for art to give back to the community where I grew up, while having fun at the same time!" For the 2019 Art Loop season Kelsey contributed her design skills by creating several marketing and ad pieces for the event.

Thank you for all you do, Kelsey!
