That is the foundation of why Jolene Rockwood was presented the 2007 Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Service Award Feb. 28.
"She has mostly worked anonymously behind the scenes of the many programs she has started," her husband continued."She has the ability to establish good programs, give them a firm basis and then get lots of other people to take ownership."
In 1982 Rockwood founded the Batesville Community School Corp.Arts-in-Education (AIE) Program.She started writing grants to bring resident artists into the schools, and since that time the program has grown and flourished.
This program "was recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts as one of the top programs in the nation in Congressional funding hearings.Batesville was designated one of three master sites in Indiana by the Indiana Arts Commission," her husband told over 200 attendees at the Sherman House dinner.
"As chairman for the AIE committee, Jolene has had a hand in the creation and installation of dozens of community public arts projects in school and public buildings in Batesville," he announced.
During the nomination process Dr. Jim Freeland, BCSC superintendent, wrote, "There are very few people in our community who it can be said have positively impacted the lives of all students K-12 in both the public and private schools in the way Jolene Rockwood has for over 25 years .... her influence will be felt for many years."
"I was on the board of directors of the RAA for the past 10 years with Jolene.
Rockwood also chaired the Heritage Arts Festival, when the Cincinnati Symphony Regional Pops Orchestra performed here in 1987, and was founder of the Great Paintings Program in the elementary schools.
In 1997 Rockwood received the Friend of Art Education Award from the Art Education Association of Indiana and the Batesville Primary School Champion of the Arts Award.
Rockwood received a standing ovation as she approached the podium.The volunteer expressed her gratitude, saying, "When you come in and start a new program, you sometimes find resistance.
