President of New Hampshire Institute of Art Joins Stay Work Play’s Board of Advisors

Manchester, NH (May 10, 2016)— New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA) is pleased to announce that NHIA President, Kent Devereaux, has joined Stay Work Play’s Board of Advisors (BoA). In this role Devereaux will work with their other BoA members to provide insight and direction to Stay Work Play. 

Stay Work Play encourages young workers to “Stay, Work and Play” in New Hampshire. The non-profit works collaboratively across New Hampshire to support ongoing economic, workforce, and community development by promoting the state as a favorable place for young workers and recent college graduates to stay, work and play, when considering employment and lifestyle opportunities.

Devereaux joined Stay Work Play’s BoA in part because he is committed to elevating not just NHIA but also the state it calls home. Both non-profits recognize the significant role colleges play in the economic, social, and cultural well being of our region and how important it is to collaborate and continue to contribute to the ongoing changes happening throughout the state.

“We’re very excited to welcome Kent to our Board of Advisors,” said Kate Luczko, President and CEO of Stay Work Play. “His experience working in a college setting will be valuable to our organization. We’re looking forward to hearing his thoughts regarding current trends, various initiatives, and ways that Stay Work Play can continue to grow our relationships with higher education institutions and students around NH.”

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to contribute to Stay Work Play’s BoA,” said Devereaux.  “It is important for students and young professionals to recognize the opportunities available right here in New Hampshire. By joining Stay Work Play’s BoA, I will continue to help develop a college-to-workplace transition so that we can keep more young people in New Hampshire.”
