The Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation is excited to announce that, during a special meeting of the Board of Directors, Catherine Luna was selected unanimously as Director of Activities for the Eureka Springs Community Center. The Foundation Board is thrilled to welcome Catherine to this project and to have someone with her credentials, education, and background involved in the initial stages of program design and implementation.
Catherine moved to Eureka Springs in 2016 from Austin, Texas and has had years of experience in non-profit management, event and program planning, and – most importantly – recreational fitness and educational programming. “Our hiring committee was so impressed with the quality of all the finalists. It was not an easy decision, but we could not have asked for a more perfect fit for our evolving Community Center project than Catherine,” said Diane Murphy, chairperson of the CC Foundation. “We are within weeks of being ready for membership and programming. Cat will be working with local citizen groups to help make some very important decisions concerning activities and schedules. To say that we are excited about all of this is a real understatement. I can’t believe we have come this far, this fast. The community has been incredible in helping us reach this lift off landmark.”
When asked about her new job, Catherine said, “The opening of the Community Center marks a major milestone for our vibrant community, and I am excited to be part of making this dream a reality.” Catherine will assume her duties in April. Opening day and planned activities will be announced very soon.
