For 25 years, the Folk School has been under the inspiring and visionary watch of Director Jan Davidson. Our School has been fortunate to have such an extraordinary person consistently at the helm— encouraging self-discovery and celebrating the happiness that comes from creating things with our hearts and hands.
Jan retired on March 1, 2017, and we wish him much love as he moves into a new life chapter. In honor of Jan and the work that he has done for the School, we are establishing the Jan Davidson Legacy Fund. All funds raised will support the John Neil Davidson Endowed Scholarship Fund and the John C. Campbell Folk School Endowment, which help improve the school and provide scholarships for those who need assistance.
