There is a dynamic power house of leadership driving the Hutchinson Center for the Arts. Our Board of Directors is comprised of community members from all backgrounds who are passionate about building a strong arts community. It is my honor as Executive Director to work with each of them.
Each month I will be introducing this team of extraordinary Arts Advocates helping to support our creative community which is vibrant, inclusive, and a vital part of the local economy. With their leadership and vision Hutchinson has become a regional hub for arts and culture.
Jill Springer has lived in Hutchinson since 2009 and has been serving on the Board of Directors since February of 2019. Jill has always had a strong love for music, loves to play the piano and in her youth participated in band playing the clarinet and in jazz band playing the saxophone. In high school, Jill participated in plays and now as an adult she enjoys spending time performing with No Lines Improv, an improvisational comedy group based out of Hutchinson.
Jill is the Executive Director at Woodstone Senior Living in Hutchinson, a job which she loves and has been doing for almost 3 years. She is also the mother to a charismatic and energetic 8 year old boy. In her free time, she enjoys being outside, socializing with friends, reading, or following her son around and participating in whatever his chosen adventure is for the moment.
Jill is active in the Hutchinson community and serves on the TigerPath Human Services subcommittee and the TigerPath steering committee at the Hutchinson High School. She also is a member of Senior Providers of McLeod County. Jill enjoys serving on the Board of the Hutchinson Center for the Arts and states, “Art is something that touches each and every one of us each and every day whether we realize it or not. I have seen art have a profound impact on people, whether they make or perform art for work or pleasure, or enjoy the amazing diversity and cultural experience that art brings to us as people. It’s just so important to work for something that provides so much for so many people.”
