The West Virginia Humanities Council Board of Directors will hold its annual spring meeting at the Greenbrier County Public Library in Lewisburg on Apr. 20, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Founded in 1974, the West Virginia Humanities Council is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and serves West Virginia through grants and direct programs in the humanities.
“Our board and committees meet regularly in Lewisburg, and it’s always a pleasure for us to be here,” Executive Director Ken Sullivan said. “We have a very active programming presence in Greenbrier County and coming here to meet allows us to check firsthand on our investments in the cultural life of the community,” he added.
Recent Humanities Council grant recipients include the Greenbrier County Historical Society, Carnegie Hall, and the Greenbrier County Community Foundation, Sullivan noted. The Council’s popular living history program History Alive brought nine presentations to Greenbrier County in the past year.
The Humanities Council is governed by its board of directors, whose members are drawn from all parts of West Virginia. The board meets three times a year at locations across the state. For more information, visit the Humanities Council’s website at www.wvhumanities.org or call 304-346-8500.
