Jody Richards Honored With Plaque Presentation
Today, Arts of Southern Kentucky honored former Kentucky Speaker of the House of Representatives Jody Richards with a plaque presentation and reception on behalf of the citizens of Southern Kentucky in recognition of his role in securing funding for the construction of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC).
Arts of Southern Kentucky President and CEO Jeff Reed said, “Acknowledging Jody Richards’ role in obtaining significant funding for SKyPAC’s construction is long overdue. It is not an overstatement to say that the building would not exist, but for Jody’s leadership. The plaque is a small way to show our community’s gratitude, but I hope that it will serve as a timeless reminder of the impact one man made on the arts in our region.”
