Experience all the Arts that Jacksonville, Illinois has to offer!
Fergurson elected to JCA Board of Directors
The Jacksonville Symphony Hall and Performing Arts Center, NFP, dba
Jacksonville Center for the Arts, Board of Directors elected Boyd “Gene”
Fergurson as a Director at its September 30, 2021 meeting.
“Gene brings valuable knowledge and skills to the Board. He has served as a
public school administrator, has worked for the Illinois State Board of
Education, and currently works with the Illinois Association of School
Boards,” said JCA President Larry Kuster.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has presented great challenges to so many
organizations and the JCA is no exception,” said Kuster. “Gene's public
school experience with pandemic issues will be valuable to the JCA Board as
it charts a path forward to make a downtown multi-purpose civic center with
performing arts facility a reality. In 2015 the JCA Board officially launched
the Jacksonville Civic Center project and this continues to be the Board's
goal. The JCA is a fully functioning Illinois not-for profit 501(c)(3) tax
exempt corporation. Any suggestion that the JCA Board is working to
redistribute its funds to other entities or charities is not true. Everyone
believes a civic center would be a cultural and economic benefit to
Jacksonville. Now is an important time in the life of this project.”
