The former CEO of a Girl Scout council in North Carolina, and former Executive Director for the arts-in-education organization, Young Audiences of Western New York, her many accomplishments have been recognized with local and national awards, including the Presidential Medal of Arts which was awarded to the Young Audiences network during her tenure, the first time in its history the award had ever been given to an organization. Janice was presented a “Hero” award by the City of Buffalo Common Council for her efforts to revitalize the City via public access to the arts. She was also named “Woman of the Year” in 2006 by the Gaston Women’s Commission honoring her achievements and leadership in the community.
