Angie Casey to serve as community liaison for arts initiative
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -
After reviewing 22 months of community conversations, research, and analysis of the Wiregrass area (Phase 1 and 2), the Wiregrass Foundation board approved to move into Phase 3 of the transformation process. Phase 3 includes:
● Scheduling community conversations
● Studying and learning from successfully transformed cities
● Conducting a fundraising feasibility study
● Contracting with a professional to facilitate the initiative.
Beginning September 1, 2020, Angie Casey will serve as a community liaison between the general public, business community and the arts as discussions are held and plans developed.
“This is a great opportunity for me to continue to be involved in this community that I care so much about. For example, when I moved to Dothan, Foster Street was practically a ghost town. It is now a place full of life and just one example of the potential to create so much more. I think Dothan is ready,” said Casey. She added, “This is a chance to enjoy some of the perks of ‘retirement’ but also work on something I feel will be so meaningful for the future of Dothan.”
Casey moved to Dothan in 1997 with her two young children to continue her career in broadcast television at WTVY. After 13 years at WTVY Angie worked in marketing for Great Southern Wood and most recently in fundraising for the Southeast Health Foundation.
Angie graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in communications. She and her husband, Jeff Miller, have three children who reside in Louisville, KY; Atlanta, GA and Maui, HI.
