June Brings More People

In June 2013, several important new people joined Heroes’ Voices.

Colonel Allan Darden joined our team of Advisors. Colonel Darden has assumed a new position with the Surgeon General of the Army at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, MD.

Rusty Rolland joined Lisa Bottom and Kathryn Cathcart as a Board member, and gave the first substantial anchor donation to Heroes’ Voices. (Thank you Rusty!) Rusty, is a former Board member the world famous vocal ensemble Chanticleer, and also served as former President of the Merola Opera Program. Marc Krause, a Vice President of Development for the National Jewish Health Center in Denver, and Lotfi Mansouri, former General Director of the San Francisco Opera also joined as Advisors.

Lisa Bottom and Rick Harrell had a substantive meeting with Jennifer Tang, the Senior Field Representative from Senator Barbara Boxer’s office. Jennifer made some very helpful suggestions, and then immediately sent out a number of emails to help connect Heroes’ Voices with important leaders in the community.
