The Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee

The Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee is a distinguished group of volunteers dedicated to the success of the Sullivan Renaissance program. They are diverse individuals with a range of affiliations, including business, government, the media, and community development with backgrounds in education, leadership, landscaping. These dedicated community leaders give generously of their time and extraordinary talents to support the revitalization and beautification of Sullivan County.

The Steering Committee works closely with the Renaissance staff to enhance programs and create initiatives to meet the ever changing opportunities in Sullivan County. They are ambassadors, attend community events, identify and monitor projects, assist at work days, participate in grant review and serve as technical advisors. The Steering Committee has been instrumental in “raising the bar” to make Sullivan County a better place.
