In Focus: Council Directors in the Spotlight

October 15, 2012 | By Federal/State Partnership Staff

Humanities magazine uses the In Focus section to highlight the leaders of our network of humanities councils. The essays allow us and Humanities readers to get to know more about a council's executive director, while at the same time drawing attention to the wonderful programs that come out of all the councils.

In Focus articles starting with January/February 2008 are now available online in a special archive section within the Humanities section of the NEH website.
