    Today, the Center bids farewell and congratulations to two great colleagues: Stephen Kidd, Festival director, and Eileen Wayner, assistant to the Center director.

    Stephen will take the helm of the National Humanities Alliance as their new executive director. Eileen is joining Linder & Associates, Inc. as an event architect. We will miss them both, but look forward to having old friends in new places.

    Thank you, Steve and Eileen, for all that you have contributed to the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

    Felicidades! Llangyfarchiadau! Gan Bei! Cheers!
