Dec 03, 2012

Our Full membership elected two new Guild trustees at our Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX  on November 13, 2012. We are pleased to welcome:

  • Jon Hinojosa, Executive Director, Say Si, San Antonio, TX
  • Kay Mabie, Co-Founder and Vice Chair, Chicago High School for the Arts, Chicago, IL

Our new trustees offer a high degree of leadership, experience and expertise that will greatly support the Guild’s efforts to support and advance access to lifelong learning opportunities in the arts.

Jon Hinojosa is the artistic/executive director of SAY Si, a multidisciplinary arts program for high school and middle school students in San Antonio, TX. He received his B.F.A. in painting from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Jon is a 2007 fellow in the executive program for Nonprofit Leaders in the Arts, a joint program of National Arts Strategies and the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Under his leadership, SAY Sí was the recipient of the 2002 Coming Up Taller award, presented by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities and the NEA. The award recognizes excellence in community-based, after-school arts and humanities programs that demonstrate the power of these disciplines to encourage young people’s creativity. Jon is also a producing and exhibiting visual artist, and the 2004 Ford Salute to Education honoree in the arts category for his commitment to San Antonio’s youth. He is a founding member and past co-chair of the San Antonio Arts in Education Task Force and a founding member and past co-chair of the Cultural Alliance of San Antonio, a consortium of San Antonio’s cultural arts directors.

Kay Mabie is a co-founder and vice chair of the Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts) and has been director of Glenbrook Meals at Home since 1987. She is also a community volunteer with several organizations including the Music Institute of Chicago (trustee since 1993 and former Chair of Board of Trustees), the Women’s Association of Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Goodman Theatre Women’s Board. Kay is also a former Public Library Trustee, former Girl Scout Leader (nine years), and former district PTA President. She managed the Northfield Public Schools’ lunch programs from 1975-1981. From 1965 to 1970, Kay was director of two summer day camps for elementary school students from the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago (one held in Wilmette for four years and one held in Northfield for three years). These camps were run in cooperation with Urban Gateways.
