Tara Sechrest: “The enrollment landscape at Idyllwild Arts”
The Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation’s Spotlight on Leadership next presentation is at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 9.
In the Idyllwild Arts campus’ Fireside Room in the Nelson Dining Hall — a comfortable setting — Tara Sechrest, vice president of enrollment management and strategic partnerships at Idyllwild Arts, will share her story. The series is open to all at no charge.
Tara will speak about: the current student body at Idyllwild Arts, enrollment trends, key talking points for Idyllwild Arts, the Associates as ambassadors, outreach efforts, and campus events and volunteer opportunities.
The Spotlight on Leadership series happens monthly with leaders from Idyllwild Arts and our community.
