Christina McGrath, Executive Director of COPPeR, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, announced today that she will be leaving COPPeR at the end of the year and joining her fiancé, an Air Force Officer, on his next assignment following their upcoming marriage.
“While I’m excited for the next chapter in my personal life, I am saddened both personally and professionally to leave COPPeR and our vibrant community,” said McGrath, a lifelong resident of Colorado Springs. “I love my job and it’s been very rewarding to be a part of the positive momentum happening in the community. COPPeR is well-positioned for a leadership transition and is a fiscally healthy and thriving organization. We have an active, committed board of directors, an excellent staff, wonderful community support, and a solid plan for growth and development. The new Executive Director will be joining the organization at a great time.”
COPPeR is poised to head into the future with many exciting goals ahead. In 2014, COPPeR will continue to work to create a community united by creativity: inviting; educating; and connecting.
“Christina has been integral to the growth and strengthening of our arts community,” said Jenny Stafford, COPPeR Board Chair. “She has fortified and leveraged tremendous civic, business and community support for both COPPeR and the arts and will be sorely missed by our board and the community. However, I am certain that she’ll continue to be a champion for the region and will have great success and happiness during her next adventure.”
