SPSCC announced this week that the art gallery within the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts will be renamed the “Leonor R. Fuller Gallery” in a dedication event on Jan. 24, 2020.

At their December meeting, the SPSCC Board of Trustees passed a resolution to honor the work of former trustee Leonor R. Fuller, an advocate for arts and education. The dedication event will take place on Jan. 24, 2020, from 5 - 7 p.m. in the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts (Building 21, First Floor, SPSCC Olympia Campus).

During her 17 years on the board, Trustee Fuller helped guide and support three presidents, worked collaboratively with 11 different Trustees, and chaired the board from 2004-2006 and 2017-2018. Notable college projects that were completed or underway during her tenure include the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts building, the purchase of 54 acres of property for the Center for Continuous Learning at the Hawks Prairie Center, the Health & Wellness Center, and the Craft Brewing & Distilling Center.
