A YEAR OF CONNECTIONS Our community is well-known for our skiing, beautiful summers, and an unparalleled mountain environment, but what makes us truly unique is our identity as a community with a culture of volunteerism, generosity, and support for one another that creates lifelong connections between all who take part. In the following pages you will find images and stories of people connecting to their interests, to their passions, to each other, and to brighter futures. Everything we do is focused on raising the quality of life for everyone: from our part time residents, to destination guests to working families, aspiring athletes, dance aficionados and more. It’s our

mission to enhance and sustain quality of life for all, and while we do it through three core areas—arts, athletics, and education—we like to think that the positive effects reverberate across all boundaries and walks of life. In this volume, we look back on a successful year that set high water marks in multiple arenas, yet we also look ahead to bold new ideas and an even brighter 2018. As our 2017 community survey revealed, there is a wide base of support for continued pursuit of major, headliner music acts at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, as well as the Vilar Performing Arts Center. In education, we seek to ‘finish the job’, ensuring that the work we begin in early childhood continues throughout grade school and into career and college readiness. In athletics, our 50-year

legacy in international ski racing pairs perfectly with the unbridled potential for the flourishing GoPro Mountain Games. We love what we do and we work hard to properly steward your support into meaningful action, improving the lives of everyone who lives in, and visits, the Vail Valley. We have been fortunate to inherit a ‘think big’ mentality from those who have built and sustained this organization since its inception in 1981, and we look forward to continuing with that spirit as we seek to make impactful contributions to our remarkable community. With sincere thanks,

Ann Smead, Chairman of the Board

DYNAMIC Only a few moments after the lights came up on August 18, it was clear the

Rodrigo y Gabriela concert at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater was going to be a smashing success. The first brilliant notes from their acoustic guitars were met with uproarious applause, and the energy only amplified from there, into the following night’s performances from Dead Man Winter and Third Eye Blind, punctuating the Ford Amphitheater 30th Anniversary celebrations with a definitive exclamation mark. The late-August event brought closure to a summer of dynamic classical, dance, rock and country performances that set a new standard for success at the iconic venue, and also gave an opportunity to recognize the community which envisioned, created, and has continually improved the facility and its artistic offerings. On hand to represent the family of the late President Gerald R. Ford was his daughter-in-law, Juliann Ford and his grandson Christian Ford. And, in a performance of perfect symmetry, the 30th Anniversary concerts also featured Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson, the legendary country star who played the first major show at Ford Amphitheater in the summer of 1997.

FUTURE The summer also hosted benchmark performances for two other well-known artistic institutions in the Vail Valley. Although a separate entity from the Vail Valley Foundation, Bravo! Vail has called the Ford Amphitheater home for 30 years, and their anniversary celebration included a record number of world premieres, expanded educational offerings, and the largest-ever number of string quartets. The festival is thriving, and we look forward to many more years of partnership with Bravo! Vail. It was also 30 years for Hot Summer Nights, the free concert series that has become a center of social activity all summer long each Tuesday night (and which now matches nicely with its cousin in Eagle, the Vail Valley Foundation’s ShowDown Town free concert series). The Vail Dance Festival, too, welcomed a larger, wider audience than ever before

as it prepares for its own 30th anniversary in 2018. In all of the above, the Ford Amphitheater’s spacious pavilion and its trademark lawn seating were often filled to capacity, with the greenery of Vail Mountain visible to one side, the splendor of the Gore Range to the other, and the meticulously-cultivated beauty of the grounds all throughout. An inevitable consequence of looking back on three decades is to also look forward, and wonder what the next 30 years of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will bring. The Vail Valley Foundation has long been built upon big ideas, and perhaps nowhere else will this become more readily apparent than at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Those same reverberating notes that launched the 30th


Anniversary celebration also launched a newfound enthusiasm to explore the possibilities for headliner acts that such a venue naturally inspires. As Willie and Lukas Nelson can attest, the opportunity for big-name music at the Ford Amphitheater is as much a vision for the future as a return to roots. As we explore future options, our community will find a place to come together, reconnect with one another, and reconnect with the same visionary leadership, unity of purpose, and generosity of spirit that created the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in the first place.

for those who dream of

SUCCES At the VVF’s YouthPower365, decades of work are coming to fruition. The children who entered our early childhood education programs dreamed of lives that may have seemed out of reach. In K–12, we taught them the basic skills to show them just how real those dreams could become. Through scholarships

and training, we helped make those dreams a reality. Each year we continue to help a new wave of young people step into the world to prove what can happen when a community comes together to support its youth. YouthPower365 provides continuity from early childhood (PwrUp), to K–12 (PwrHrs), and into “I have learned techniques to help my career & college readiness own children and I have become more (PwrOn), so that our young people are working with involved in my community the same familiar faces and schools with greater ease.” every step of the way. Our successes have begun to Blanca Cabral, make YouthPower365 a Parent Mentor coordinator

There is still work to be done, from early childhood to graduation day and beyond. As we look ahead, we are focusing in on high school, and students transitioning to high school, to assure that no one falls through the cracks or gets lost along the way. (continued on page 10)

There are effective and researchbased solutions to some of our student’s challenges. That’s why we partnered with the L.A.- based Fulfillment Fund to borrow their proven ideas in the fight against high school drop-out rates. We are also partnering with Eagle County Schools, the Vail Valley Partnership, and Colorado Mountain College to provide valuable career training right here in our valley via Career X internship and CareerWise apprenticeship programming. And our pilot group-mentoring program is providing role models for young people to lean on as they navigate the complexities of young adulthood. Together with our existing programs, and with tremendous community support, we are making great strides toward our goal to serve, ‘Every Child, Every Day,” in Eagle County. As we do, we are connecting students and teachers, parents and mentors, and a community with its own future. Most importantly, we are connecting young students with their dreams.

a moment when they are awestruck by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. It can be quite transformative, and is often followed by a silent pledge to return, perhaps even make a home here. Day by day, year by year, over the past half-century our valley has grown from a sparse collection of ranchers to a thriving community, known worldwide, that now spans the entire valley. This growth brought real-world challenges to our community. Perhaps the most important among these is the creation of fair and equitable education opportunities for all. Early on, the board, staff, and donors of the Vail Valley Foundation realized that the education aspect of the organization’s mission would play a key role in supporting our young people and families as they navigated the often-difficult path required to make a living,

and sustain a quality life, in these remarkable surroundings. In the 1990s, the Vail Valley Foundation began to significantly develop its youth education activities in the community, identifying areas of need and taking active steps to make an impact that would span from early childhood education into college scholarships. Although the effort was communitywide, there were several individuals who were extraordinary not only in their financial support, but in their engagement, creative ideas, and leadership in the partnership with the local school district to create education programs that are still pillars of our work today. Among those who made a transformational difference are Oscar Tang, Kathy and Bjorn Erik Borgen, Karen and Mike Herman, Joe Smead, Ann Smead and Michael Byram,

Tang family, and the Borgen family.

LEGACY Lissa Tyler, Susan and Harry Frampton, Sandra Smyser, Brian Nolan, Amy and Steve Coyer, and former VVF Presidents and CEO’s, John Garnsey (with his wife Vicky) and Ceil Folz. Several among these have received the Vail Valley Foundation’s Education Legacy Award, recognizing the highest level of support for education initiatives in the Vail Valley. Those are: The Oscar Tang family; The Bjorn Erik Borgen family; Ann Smead and Michael Byram; and Amy and Steve Coyer. The Education Legacy Award is presented each year at the Star Dancing Gala, which celebrates its 10th year on July 17, 2018. As the VVF’s education initiatives expanded, a few important education programs were funded in whole or in part by the VVF and managed by the Youth Foundation. Founded in 1997, the Youth Foundation’s work in education began to grow in

the 2000s to include a series of programs from early childhood education, into K–12 programming and scholarships. Just as VVF had key visionaries so, too, did the Youth Foundation. Passionate and committed individuals like Barbie and Jim Allen, Kathy and John Brendza, Chupa Nelson, Gerald Gallegos, Mark Smith, Susie Davis, Peter Abuisi, Bob Brown, Don Remey, Ron Davis, Jay Regan and many others created something very special. In time, the benefits of merging the Youth Foundation into the Vail Valley Foundation became apparent, and in 2011 the work began in earnest, with the merger officially completing on January 1, 2012. All of the Vail Valley Foundation’s education work is now known as YouthPower365. Today, VVF’s YouthPower365 education mission is to provide year-round extended learning opportunities that

empower and educate the youth and families of Eagle County from cradle to career, and our vision is to serve, ‘Every Child, Every Day’. Throughout the year, and on these pages, the Vail Valley Foundation would like to take time to share our gratitude with everyone who has been a part of our education legacy, and a part of the creation of the important work being done today by YouthPower365. In 2017 and 2018, we are entering an era when the children who were part of our first early-education programs are coming of age, and making their impact on the communities around them—many of them right here at home. Day by day, year by year, we are proving that our support for one another, our families, and our youth can be just as beautiful and inspiring as the mountains that surround us.

RACING H As one of the best ski racers of all time,

Austria’s Marcel Hirscher knows the World Cup tour inside and out. So, it was high praise when Hirscher, fresh off winning the 2017 Birds of Prey Giant Slalom, said in his post-race press conference that our races were probably the “best in the world.” This reputation did not arise overnight. The Vail/Beaver Creek ski racing legacy began in 1967, then took a leap forward with the first of three FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 1989, and again with the first running of the Birds of Prey World Cup in 1997. At the 1999 and 2015 Alpine World Ski Championships, and at the annual Birds of Prey World Cup races early each December, our valley shines in the international spotlight, with multiple organizations working tirelessly to uphold our ranking as the No. 1 overall venue on the

HEART World Cup tour according to an independent survey of athletes and coaches. In the 2017 lead-up to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, the international spotlight shined exceptionally bright. National networks from around the world joined NBC Sports in delivering the Beaver Creek story to a worldwide viewership audience of more than 80 million. Not only did viewers experience a dramatic athletic event on a worldrenowned course, but in the precious moments between runs they were also given a brief window into our Rocky Mountain world. There are stories inscrutable to a camera lens. For those, there is the written word, capped by Beaver Creek datelines in publications like the New York Times, USA Today, the Denver Post, and the Washington Post; radio commentary from National Public Radio and Radio Österreich International; news feeds and still photography from Associated Press, Getty Images, Reuters and

Agence France-Presse; all of it capturing moments from a course known as one of the toughest to ski, but the most enjoyable to watch. In this day and age, much of the story is told through social media. Thousands took part in the crowd-pleasing press conferences held among the public in Beaver Creek Village with stars like Ted Ligety, Steven Nyman, and Bode Miller. On Facebook and Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, a new generation of fans experienced a digital sample of what Vail and Beaver Creek have to offer. Thanks to EverBank America’s Winter Opening, the offerings in Beaver Creek Village included a vibrant collection of concerts, parties, movies, athlete signings, giveaways and more, all of it celebrated with selfies and hashtags on the all-important small screen. In 2017, the professionalism of the snowmaking crews and courseworkers were on grand display. Even more than any other year, the 2017 races required strong collaborative effort from the Vail

Valley Foundation, Vail Resorts, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, Beaver Creek Resort Company, the FIS, the U.S. Forest Service, Ski and Snowboard Club Vail, more than 700 volunteers, and many other people and partners from around the valley and the world. The work did not go unnoticed: FIS Race Director Markus Waldner said the course was in better condition going into training day than he’d ever seen it. When the world comes to Beaver Creek, Beaver Creek connects to the world. We connect with ski racing fans near and far, re-enforcing the bonds that make ski racing such a tightly-knit community. Our races also allow young ski racers to connect with the dream that maybe one day they, too, will race a World Cup right here on their own home soil, and become one of the legends to have conquered the world-famous Birds of Prey course.



“The Birds of Prey World Cup downhill is, to be honest, it’s

one of the best races in the whole season not just because it is in the U.S., but because of the

characteristics of the course.

TAINS adventure


There were early signs that 2017 was going to be a good year at the GoPro Mountain Games. It started with an event forecast for sunshine paired with a light mountain breeze. By Thursday, June 8, the sun was sparkling photogenically off the roiling waters of Homestake Creek as the world’s best kayakers performed in front of Outside TV’s drone-borne cameras. Thursday night’s Mountains of Music benefited from the beautiful backdrop of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater while international slackline celeb Mickey Wilson dazzled the crowd from his highline 40 feet up in the air. Athletes milled about the grounds, high-fiving kids. The sun began to set, the music came up, and it suddenly became clear: the Mountain

Games were ON, and it wasn’t just going to be good…it was going to be phenomenal. By Saturday, the GoPro Mountain Games hosted what was likely the largest day—winter or summer—in terms of visitors to the Town of Vail. Spectator numbers throughout the weekend exceeded 70,000, and more than 3,300 athletes and 140 brands took part in the latest incarnation of the event, now well-known as the best all-around mountain experience available anywhere in the world. The quality of the experience is no mistake. Guided by the principle that everyone who attends should

want to return again, the Vail Valley Foundation sought to enhance experiences across the board. A new website, new events, improved registration, and an all-new Ultimate Mountain Challenge were just the beginning; additional shade, water, and access to information were all considered and improved. Mountains of Music free concerts were expanded, and electrified the Ford Amphitheater. The process is working. At the 2017 GoPro Mountain Games, the net promotor score (a number which gauges the percentage of attendees who would recommend the event to others) reached a record-high 94

percent, a remarkable 18 percent increase year-over-year. In recent years the GoPro Mountain Games have found their stride, but big things are on the horizon, and intriguing possibilities await. In 2018, new events and improvements will continue the 16-year legacy of this now-iconic event, encouraging each and every spectator and competitor to tell their stories, share their memories, and spread the word about just how good it can feel to connect to the GoPro Mountain Games and to the arts, athletics, and culture which can be found right here each June in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.



“It’s by far my favorite event of the year.”

EXCEPTIO Literally or figuratively, it is exceedingly difficult to catch Damian Woetzel off balance. Michelle Dorrance nearly succeeded one evening at the Vail Dance Festival as the two parlayed during an onstage interview. It was a fleeting moment— and not everyone caught its significance—but in it, Dorrance hinted that Woetzel would once again be dancing in a formal piece at the Festival, something he had not done since 2007. The secret survived intact until the crucial moment. Woetzel, whose name had been held off the program, gracefully entered the stage and joined 14 other dancers in Dorrance’s new work called, we seem to be more than one. The audience took advantage of an ideal excuse to show their


Vail Dance Festival

appreciation for all he’s done for the Festival since becoming Artistic Director in 2006 with an enthusiastic round of applause. Woetzel quickly fell into rhythm with the others, playing his part in an orchestration that brilliantly celebrates both unity and individuality, with dancers from multiple genres each performing their own variation on tap. The importance of the piece was not lost on the patrons, staff, interns, dancers, and the greater Festival family that had gathered in Vail July 29–Aug. 12. In fact, the concepts presented onstage resonated throughout the audience, the Festival, and the dance world as a whole because of what it so perfectly represented: improvisation, plurality, and inclusiveness;

ONAL artistry unity and connections that in 2017 found their apogee in Vail, onstage and off. More than any other year, the Vail Dance Festival’s 29th reverberated with new friendships and collaborations, a sense of comradery and heightened artistry that indicated that the Vail Dance Festival is heading into its 30th year with spirit and momentum enough to carry it far into the future. Consider the moment when Roman Mejia, a 17-yearold sensation, now an apprentice at New York City Ballet, danced Edward Villella’s role in Balanchine’s 1964 Tarantella pas de deux. His father, Paul, one of the great dancers of his time, was there in the audience to watch his progeny push himself to new limits. Or consider the evening of NOW Premieres, when the night featured new works created entirely by female choreographers. Or in Avon, where two performances allowed more spectators than ever to enjoy free shows at Dancing in the Park, even as more than 1,000 young

people took part in our free ticketing program for children 12 and under at the Ford Amphitheater, and more than 200 new audience members were given the opportunity to experience dance via our Community Arts Access program. In more ways than one, the 2017 Vail Dance Festival was a success for the record books. For the first time ever, lawn seats were sold out to capacity, and ticket sales were better than any other year in terms of tickets per show as well as overall revenue. In 2017, thanks to tremendous support from patrons, partners, sponsors, and the greater Vail Valley arts community, the Vail Dance Festival created a series of livewire connections that buzzed with heightened energy, connecting the audiences to the art, dancers to one another, and the national dance community to a Festival experience that explored the artform with remarkable passion and enthusiasm.

it revealed a building so well-appointed as to appear virtually new. Hours of work, years of planning, and an exceptional amount of support and generosity from the community had ensured that the VPAC would look (and sound) as beautiful as possible for its 20-year anniversary, which it will celebrate all through the 2017–18 seasons. Plush new seats were just the beginning. Improved stage lighting, a new theater floor, new carpeting, enhanced audio monitoring equipment, and of course the very-popular new beverage holders are helping the theater put its best foot forward. Like everything in show business, the behind-the-scenes activity for the theater makeover was frenetic, but it all came together by

show time. This was highlighted at the season-opening Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers on July 3: a filled-to-capacity audience had no inkling that the last of the immaculate new seats (which, by the way, are engineered in perfect balance of comfort and sound-absorption) had been bolted into place only two hours before curtain. A bustling schedule is a core part of life at the VPAC, so it can be hard to recall what the Village looked like more than 20 years ago, when the Beaver Creek community initiated a bold idea to place a world-class performing arts theater beneath an ice rink at the base of one of the finest ski mountains in the world. The creativity of that idea has been matched only by the hundreds of performances since then, bringing Beaver Creek alive with Broadway, concerts, dance, classical, comedy and family performances on par with anything available in major metro areas throughout the world. And yet, for 20 years, we’ve been able to host these performances right here in the heart of the Rockies. Throughout

Vilar Performing Arts Center

AINMENT the season we will undertake a heartfelt effort to give thanks to an outstanding array of visionaries, architects, donors, volunteers, patrons, underwriters, and community institutions that have been a part of its creation and its subsequent flourishing. It took a village to build The Village. Today, a new era of supporters and visionaries continue the legacy of the Vilar Performing Arts Center. VPAC Committee Chair Alexia Jurschak and Executive Director Duncan Horner are laying the groundwork for another 20 years of connecting artists and audiences, connecting patrons with their passions, and connecting all of us to one another as we celebrate this impeccable gem in the center of the Beaver Creek community.

The financials at left reflect an eight-month fiscal year (10.1.16–5.31.17) The Vail Valley Foundation changed its financial year-end from September 30 to May 31 to more closely align with program, event, and subsidiary business cycles. The initial 8-month year ending May 31, 2017 does not include revenues from three major events as the summer 2016 events were reported within the 12-month year ending September 30, 2016 and the revenues generated from the summer 2017 events will be included in the 12-month year ending May 31, 2018 and for all subsequent years henceforth.

The Global Energy Forum ended its storied six-year run in the Vail Valley in 2017, and will now move to the Stanford campus. The Global Energy Forum at Stanford will be held in the spectacular new David and Joan Traitel Building November 1–2, 2018 with the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy leading the effort to plan and execute the annual event. “We are enormously grateful to our friends in the Valley for their generous reception to the Global Energy Forum that past six years,” said Jay Precourt, founder of the Global Energy Forum. “We have laid a solid foundation and are excited to take the Forum to the next level at Stanford beginning in 2018. The future of energy offers


Global Energy Forum

enormous challenges and opportunities and we are excited to continue our examination of those at next November’s Forum.” What started in 2012 as a relatively small gathering of local Vail Valley residents and energy thought leaders quickly grew into one of the energy industry’s premier gatherings. Nearly 500 high-level North American energy executives, policy makers, academic leaders and students made the journey to the Vail Valley for the annual Forum that featured speakers such as Former Secretary of State George Shultz, Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Michael Hayden, Former Director of the NSA and

CIA, U.S. Senator Cory Gardner and U.S. Senator Rob Portman, among dozens of others. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper was a constant presence at the Forum, participating in all but one event.

Citizen of the year:

JAY PRECOURT The best way to get to know Jay and Molly Precourt is to meet them for a day of fly fishing, or lean on a fence rail to talk horses with Molly. And while they’re well-known for their love of the outdoors, the Precourts are even more well-known for their legacy of philanthropy that has been transformative and impactful across all areas of life in the Vail Valley and beyond. Jay Precourt’s wide-ranging philanthropic work has reached into the world of arts, health, the environment, education and more. For this, and for all he has done in support of the community, the Vail Valley Foundation recently announced that Jay Precourt has been awarded the 2017 Vail Valley Foundation Citizen of the Year. Jay and Molly first came to Vail in the 1970s, and have been active in the community ever since. Since 1994, Jay has been a steadfast supporter of the Vail Valley Foundation’s mission to provide leadership in the arts, athletics, and education in the Vail Valley. He was instrumental in the 2001 Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater capital campaign, and has been a generous contributor to all of the Vail Valley Foundation’s efforts, in particular to the Vail Valley Foundation’s YouthPower365, helping serve more than 4,200 youth in early childhood, K–12, and career-college readiness programming. He also recently provided a significant donation to Vail Health which funded a lifesaving cardiac lab, now known as the Precourt Family Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Lab. His donation not only supports the Vail Health cardiac program, but extends the hospital’s endocrinology program, research at the Steadman Institute, and supports the renovation and expansion of the Vail Health campus. Jay’s donation also seeded first ever capital campaign for Vail Health (formerly Vail Valley Medical Center) and Steadman Philippon Research Institute, and is a groundbreaking combined effort to make Vail a destination for research and medicine in the years to come.

Citizen of the Year

Jay has served on the hospital’s board of directors for the last seven years, has been the President of the Eagle Valley Land Trust, and has served on the boards of Denver Art Museum Foundation, the Children’s Hospital of Denver, the Historic Denver Foundation, and the world-renowned Alley Theater in Houston. His generosity spans over multiple organizations in Vail Valley, including Walking Mountains Science Center, Steadman Philippon Research Institute, and Bravo! Vail. Jay received his BS and MS degrees in petroleum engineering from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard University. He and Molly enjoy skiing, fly-fishing, and equestrian activities. The Citizen of the Year honor is presented at the annual Black Diamond Ball event, hosted by the Vail Valley Foundation Feb. 17, 2018, at the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek.

Volunteer of the year:

JAN HILAND Jan Hiland, the Vail Valley Foundation’s 2017 Volunteer of the Year, is a somewhat reluctant recipient who has a very simple philosophy when it comes to volunteerism. “I really feel there are other people who have been volunteering as much if not more than me for many years in the Vail Valley,” said Hiland. “Of course, I am extremely surprised and honored, but I kind of look at life as holes that need to be filled. You jump in and you fill the holes.” Filling holes can include almost anything, and in a quarter century of Vail Valley volunteering, Hiland has done virtually everything—from chairing Wild West Days early on and raising tens of thousands of dollars for local elementary schools, helping to open the Middle School in Gypsum, to running events for the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, helping found Eagle County for Human Rights, and volunteering for the 1999 Alpine World Ski Championships, the Red Ribbon Project, and Vail Resorts’ Epic Promise program. For Hiland, filling holes can also be much more than a mere metaphor. It can literally mean patching up the costumes of world-class dancers at the Vail Dance Festival and calming the nerves of never-ever dancers at the Vail Valley Foundation’s YouthPower365 Star Dancing Gala fundraiser every year. It all started with a daughter who danced and a friend who ran a dance school. This led to Hiland volunteering for the remade Dance Festival at the Ford Amphitheater, soon after the Bolshoi left and the Festival was being successfully reinvented. Hiland volunteered in order to get tickets for friends and family, but then started hanging out back stage and helping put on costumes, armed with only a couple of shoe boxes full of needles, thread, and a steamer. Many years later, Hiland is the officially titled and professionally-equipped Wardrobe Mistress, who also doles out oxygen and water for professional

dancers impacted by Vail’s altitude and dry atmosphere. But she’s not interested in credit for that role because it’s been more about bringing young dancers together. Hiland, whose day job is as a senior administrator for Beaver Creek Mountain Operations, is now an integral part of the Vail Valley Foundation’s Dance Festival team after those early volunteer days starting in 2001. But no matter the cause, it’s all about filling the holes in life for Hiland… and doing it with style.

DEAN DAVIS It’s hard to summarize all that Dean Davis has done for the Vilar Performing Arts Center since he first joined in 2006. As Facilities Manager he oversees work on capital improvements, engineering, housekeeping, freight and artist parking logistics. When not at the VPAC he enjoys attending live theater and dance performances, visiting art museums, and biking with his partner, Betsy.
