Rekha Skantharaja Named to the Luther Burbank Memorial Foundation Board of Directors

Category: In the News

Rekha Skantharaja, our President and CEO, has just been added to the Board of Directors for the Luther Burbank Memorial Foundation. This Sonoma-based nonprofit organization owns and operates the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

When asked about her new appointment, Rekha said: “I attended LBC’s annual Art of Dessert fundraiser this year and was so moved by the musical performance of the Mariachi Ensemble. I picked up the flute at age 9 and it felt like magic—as the only Sri Lankan child in a predominantly Caucasian community, music and theater gave me an entry point to feel like I belonged. I saw myself in those children performing at LBC and I know the Center’s arts programs are creating self-esteem that will live with those kids for a lifetime. It is my honor to help in any way needed.”

Paul Wilcock, Board Chair of the foundation, said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors for Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, I welcome Rekha Schipper, a successful and accomplished professional in her field. We are honored to have a dedicated group of North Bay leaders who choose to bring their passion and expertise to help LBC grow our mission.”
