Peggy Baggett Receives Leadership in the Arts Award

On Saturday, January 8, Suny Monk presented Peggy Baggett, executive director of the Virginia Commission for the Arts, with a much-deserved Leadership in the Arts Award "for her dedication and inspiring leadership in the arts of Virginia for over three decades and eight governors." Peggy was unaware that VCCA was planning to give her this award when she came to their 40th Anniversary Celebration - so it was a big surprise! Congratulations, Peggy!
