ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., has honored Marit Majeske '07, house manager for the Hylton Performing Arts Center, with one of its renowned 2014 LEAD® Emerging Leader awards. She will be presented with the award at the LEAD® 2014 conference this week, Aug. 4-6, in Chicago, Illinois.
Created in 2008, the LEAD® Award for Emerging Leaders acknowledges arts administrators who are motivated by the LEAD® conference to advocate for accessibility within their organizations and communities.
As house manager for the Hylton at George Mason University's Prince William campus, Majeske and her team provide accessibility aids at Hylton events, including large-print programs for every performance and captioning for two recent performances.
Majeske, who joined George Mason in 2010, earned a M.A. at George Mason and two B.A. degrees – one in in mass communication and one in music (minor in political science) – at Winthrop.
