City of Camden Arts, Cultural & Heritage Commission:We are truly honored William was appointed as a Commissioner to the City of Camden Arts, Cultural & Heritage Commission. William was thankful and humbled to be selected for this honor and then to be chosen as the chair by his fellow commissioners. Due to health issues in our family and also to devote more time to his art and work, William recently resigned from the commission. It was a great privilege for William to serve in this capacity, and it was truly gratifying working with Mayor Frank Moran and his team, the City Council, and his fellow Commission members. Our prayer is the mission and vision of this Commission would grow deeper and wider lifting all the artists throughout Camden and our city overall. May God be Glorified. Our city has many incredible and talented people. Thank you for continuing to support the arts and businesses in Camden.
