After 30 years of serving the Toe River Arts Council as Director, Denise Cook will be turning over the reins of the organization to Nealy Andrews. Cook took over the position from founding director Susan Larson, who served from 1976 until 1987. The TRAC board spent six months in their search. After an extensive interview process of several well qualified candidates Andrews was chosen. Andrews has a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education from Appalachian State University and is pursuing her master’s in Public Administration.
