The Pocahontas County Opera House Foundation is proud to announce that its long-time president (now vice-president) Rene White will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award during the annual Governor’s Service Awards banquet in Charleston on July 30.
For the past 15 years, White has been involved with the Pocahontas County Opera House helping to make it the ‘cultural heart of the community.’ As a member of the programming committee, she has been dedicated to ensuring that the Opera House remains a family-friendly place where everyone feels welcome. She has always advocated for performing artists who can offer hands-on experiences for students during the school day. While maintaining this important vision for programming, she is never afraid to get her hands dirty doing some of the less glamorous tasks of cleaning, mopping floors and washing tablecloths. She is always ready to bake refreshments for intermission – making this part of the evening an event in itself.
