Here’s what community members are saying about the Richland Academy of the Arts.

For years I have admired the work that the Richland Academy of the Arts has done with the youth in our community, under your direction as founder. I have found that the children and families in our community are blessed to have such a positive spirit of cooperation between those who care so much about reaching others.

Ron Spon Judge, Richland County Juvenile Court

The enthusiasm is infectious for those who frequent the Academy. You can see it in the faces of the employees, the volunteers and the children--of all ages.

Keith Stoner North Central State College

We have partnered with Richland Academy for the past thirteen years to provide essential programs for the 60+ population. These programs have truly blossomed because of the commitment they have to meeting the needs in the counties they serve. There is a real need for Richland Academy to continue the beneficial programs provided to all age groups. The Agency, without hesitation, supports Richland Academy and their efforts. I applaud Richland Academy's mission.

Duana Patton Chief Executive Officer, Area Agency on Aging

RAA is such a valuable asset to the Richland County community and one of my favorite community partners to collaborate with. Their wide variety of creative and engaging programming for all ages and abilities is truly spectacular. Support and utilize RAA as much as you can!
