The Rappahannock Foundation for the Arts (RFA) recently announced the appointment of Carole Barton as its new administrator.
Barton has a bachelor’s in business administration with honors from Geneva College in Pennsylvania. She brings a solid background in finance and program administration having served most recently as the finance manager of the Northern Neck Land Conservancy in Lancaster. Prior to that, she held accounting positions with businesses in Burgess and Richmond.
“We are excited to have someone with Carole’s breadth of experience in technology and database management to further enhance the RFA’s recent initiative that brought On Stage ticketing online to our subscribers,” said president Peggy Stalnaker. “Her 20 years of business skills will be put to good use in oversight of fundraising and grant writing.”
Barton replaces former administrator Tina Hagen, who will continue with the RFA, coordinating all public relations, marketing and communications efforts, including management of the RFA website, program production and press materials.
“Tina’s precise editing, as well as her creative and innovative approach to marketing are the perfect complement to Carole’s accounting and administrative strengths,” said Stalnake. “We are thrilled to have such a dynamic duo already working together on the two remaining On Stage concerts.”
The spring concerts will feature Danu, an Irish Celtic group, on March 15 and “A Tribute to the Four Tops” by Shadows of the 60s, on April 15. Both concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Middle School Theater, 191 School Street, Kilmarnock.
