The Board of Directors welcomes Client Liaison John Bogasky to a one-year term. The Client Liaison assists the Board in understanding the needs and concerns of ArtStreamers as the Board makes decisions that will impact the ArtStream community.

John graduated from the Katharine Thomas High School in 2011, and from the GROW Program at the Riverview School on Cape Cod in 2014.  While at Riverview, John made a cameo appearance in the Oscar-nominated documentary Life, Animated.  After Riverview, John was accepted into the Project SEARCH Smithsonian internship program.  A successful internship led the Smithsonian to offer John a permanent position.  Today he works on the maintenance team at the National Museum of American History.

John has an active social life and participates in many programs.  He has been a Special Olympics athlete for 20 years and recently became an athlete leader for Special Olympics Maryland.  He also participates with Spirit Club, Main Street, Upcounty Community Resources (UCR), and regularly attends PCR dances.  Since early 2015, John has been an enthusiastic participant in ArtStream’s Super Social Saturday – Gaithersburg class.  John also enjoys watching his friends in ArtStream performances.

This is John’s first experience serving on a board.  He looks forward to helping ArtStream be more successful.  John’s first-hand experience with ArtStream and many other local programs will make him an asset to the Board of Directors

John lives in his own apartment in Rockville Town Center with support from SEEC.
