New FAC Executive Director Leslie Lee

The Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County has hired Leslie Lee as its new executive director.

Lee will fill the position vacated by former executive director Woody Goff, who resigned in July.

“We are excited to have Leslie coming on board as our new executive director,” FAC Board of Directors Chair Beth Ford said. “She has a lot of experience in the arts and we believe she will bring so much to the FAC and to the community.”

Lee comes to the FAC from the Anderson Arts Center, in Anderson, where she served as executive director. Prior to that, she was executive director of the Gaston School of the Arts, in Gastonia, N.C. In addition, she has held leadership positions with Junior Achievement of Central Carolinas; the Greater Hartford, Conn., Arts Council; Connecticut Public Broadcasting; and worked in several for-profit companies in sales and manufacturing. She has also served on a variety of non-profit boards in the greater Charlotte, N.C., area.

A native of Boston, Mass., Lee currently lives in York, but will be relocating to Kershaw County, Ford said. Lee holds a degree in voice performance from the University of Connecticut, certificates in non-profit management and diversity and intercultural competency from Wake Forest University and a certificate in non-profit management from Winthrop University. She has extensive experience in performing (both as a child and an adult) as a musician and an actress.

“She also has quite a bit of grant writing experience that augments her arts education and administative experience, “ Ford noted. “She said she also plans to be active in the arts regionally; in fact, she was recently nominated to the board of the Palmetto State Arts Education Organization.”

Lee will start in her new position with the FAC on Sept. 24, Ford said.
