Jarrad Howard, Project Director, brings his passion for non-profits and the arts to Alexander-Haas. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre from Brenau University, and as a member of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, Jarrad’s background in music and theatre led him to development and fundraising. As a capstone to his degree, he worked side by side with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS to coordinate and execute a highly successful benefit for the organization. After graduating, Jarrad worked with Atlanta’s Academy Theatre and charter schools in the metro Atlanta area as a development liaison.
