Board of Governors

Board of Governors

The Willa Cather Foundation's Board of Governors is a diverse group of individuals dedicated to promoting the life, times, and work of Willa Cather. These business professionals and scholars reside from coast to coast and donate their time and talents to perpetuate the success of our educational activities. Regular communication and committee meetings are ongoing, and the Board meets three times a year— one time each in Omaha, Lincoln, and Red Cloud, Nebraska.
