"We feel that Susan will be a great leader to take what we are doing here to the next level of excellence," said Dr. John Toussaint, chairman of the search and screen committee. "Her accomplished leadership skills and dedication to the arts will make her a great addition to our community."
Stockton noted, "The enthusiasm and support the community has shown for this new facility created a dream. In reading articles about the building's construction, I was amazed by the community spirit and energy and knew we would be blessed to be living and working in a place capable of achieving such greatness."
