I am an attorney of 24 years. I bring legal knowledge and experience to HCT, especially in the area of Not-for-profit Corporate Law. I also have significant experience in nonprofit management. My theatrical background goes back 42 years.
Deborah Ozga Ruth
Debbie has been involved at Holland Civic Theatre for more than 15 years. “Believe it or not, I am actually quite shy, but I am also very, very creative. I love people, the arts, and always make every effort to keep things positive. I am also super family oriented.” In fact, after being involved with several community and dinner theatres in East Michigan, it was because of her family that Debbie first became involved at HCT as a Theatre Mom when her daughter Jessica was cast as Gretel in the Children’s show Hansel & Gretel. As her other children Danny and Annessa also became involved in the theatre, Debbie hopped back in as well. “It was so much fun, and I loved meeting other families and like-minded parents.”
Jon brings his passions for family and not-for-profit leadership as a first-year Board member. As a parent of a “theater kid,” Jon wants to see HCT grow and increase opportunities for children & youth to get involved with theater. He has previously worked and volunteered for several other organizations and prefers to work behind the scenes rather than on stage. Jon loves baseball, sound budgets, and collaborating with other organizations.
