Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation
Since its first meeting in the Fall of 1994, the Board of Directors of the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation has worked hard ensure the future of the Cultural Center.
The SCHF Board of Directors shapes the program of work and remains committed to the mission and goals of the organization. It is through the leadership and commitment of these twenty-one volunteers and previous board members that SCHF preserves the five historic buildings in the Mississippi Landmark property and continues to provide enriching cultural, educational, and artistic programming to the community.
During the November Annual Meeting, the new 2007 Board of Directors and officers were elected. Thanks so much to the new 2007 Board of Directors for their time, talents and willingness to serve. The organization could not survive without you!

For January, the Southern Book Club will discuss Barefootin' by Unita Blackwell and Joanne Prichard on Wednesday, January 17.
