These positions for two-year terms are open
Melvin Pontious is honored for service to arts education in Wisconsin as he retires from the state Department of Public Instruction.Representatives from the arts community across Wisconsin came together Thursday evening, June 2, 2011, to honor Mel for his many years of tireless service advocating and guiding Arts Education in Wisconsin. The event was held at the Music Education Building in Waunakee. Mel has been an active member of the WAEA Board since the early 2000's. We will all miss his gentle, in depth counsel and dedication. We could always rely on a speedy reply to our questions and concerns.
Enjoy your retirement Mel. But don't be surprised if we still call you for guidance and advice.
