June 2013 Member of the Month
June 13, 2013
The June 2013 Natrona County Prevention Coalition Member of the Month is Zhanna Gallegos with the Nicolaysen Art Museum (Nic). Zhanna works as the Coordinator of Education where she organizes outreach efforts in our community. Her support and direction in implementing the Nic’s Art Works afterschool program not only provided an incredibly successful program for children in our community, but also cultivated a wonderful partnership between the Nic and NCPC.
Zhanna participates actively with the NCPC. She attends meetings each month and provides support to the NCPC Chronic Disease subcommittee.
The Nic provides “work of contemporary artists…to the community as a vital source of inspiration and education” and the Discovery Center which “offers a variety of educational programs including art classes, workshops, [and] lectures for all ages”. This supports the NCPC mission “to prevent substance abuse in our community by promoting healthy and positive choices”.
We are so grateful for the incredible work Zhanna and the NIC are doing to provide positive and healthy opportunities for the members of our community, and look forward to seeing them at the following activities this summer:
