President

“When I was fourteen years old, I had a neighbor named Jack Midgley, and he was building a house down from us. They needed some manpower to help out at the Festival, so he recruited me to come down with him and we moved panels and moved stuff around and I sort of got hooked. It was like joining the circus at the time.I started when we were down at the Civic Center, where the old library was.”

Terry continued to volunteer for the Festival as a Director and as President. He has been a Board Member of the Foundation since 1988 and serving as President since 2015.
