Rose Sheheen was tapped as interim executive director at the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County.
Sheheen replaces the center’s former director, Kristin Cobb, who in July accepted a position at the Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College.
Rose S. Sheheen is a long-time resident of Camden and a retired public school teacher, principal and assistant superintendent. She is immediate past president of the South Carolina Arts Alliance, past president of the Kershaw County Fine Arts Center, former member of the South Carolina State School Board, founding member of Second Look Charities, past president of the Camden Junior Welfare League, school mentor, and active in community, church and professional organizations. Mrs. Sheheen is the mother of Maria Spring, Vincent Sheheen, Margaret Bishop and grandmother of eight.
"After forming a search committee to fill the executive director position, we knew we needed someone to fill the position on an interim basis. Our first thought was that we needed someone who loves Camden, is an advocate of education, and most importantly a dedicated supporter of the arts," said current FAC Board Chair, Boyd Black. "Securing Rose Sheheen as the interim director ensures steady, experienced and capable leadership as we seek a new director. Rose Sheheen was the perfect choice for us."
