Seven community arts education leaders will be honored with the 2014 National Guild Milestone Certificate of Appreciation for their long-standing, exceptional service to the field. The goal of the Milestone program—now in its third year— is to recognize leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to supporting and advancing community arts education for more than 20 years. Certificates will be presented during the Guild's Annual Meeting at the Conference for Community Arts Education (Los Angeles, CA) on Friday, November 21, 2014. 

The recipients are:
  • Glenna Avila, Director, CalArts Community Arts Partnership, Los Angeles, CA
  • Jo Ellen DeVilbiss, Executive and Artistic Director, The Conservatory of Central Illinois, Champaign, IL
  • Beth Dowd, Founder, Songcatchers, New Rochelle, NY
  • Robert Gilson, Director, School of the Arts, 92nd Street Y, New York, NY
  • Jeanne Kelly, Founder/Executive Director, Encore Creativity for Older Adults, Tracys Landing, MD
  • Robert C. McAllister, Dean, The Colburn Community School of Performing Arts, Los Angeles, CA
  • Lynn Warshafsky, Co-Founder, Venice Arts, Venice, CA
“The National Guild is thrilled to recognize these exceptional leaders for their vision and their dedication to community arts education,” said Jonathan Herman, executive director of the National Guild. “Through their decades-long work with communities and their service to the field, this year’s Milestone recipients have each made a powerful contribution to increasing equitable access to arts education.”
