Sturgis Center for the Arts is led by a combination of paid employees and volunteers. Each staff member is hand-picked by the Board of Directors because he or she has the skills, experience, personal traits, and motivation that we feel will best shape our organization in the years to come. Please feel free to contact them anytime; they're here because they care about each and every person that walks through our door.

We are pleased to introduce our current managing team:


Justine Burggraff
