P.S. ARTS welcomes new leadership by hiring John Lawler as its next CEO. Mr. Lawler, who is currently the principal of Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA), will succeed current CEO Dr. Kristen Paglia who will officially retire in September after 14 years of service.
“I am humbled and honored to join the P.S. ARTS team and carry on the invaluable work of the organization. P.S. ARTS’ mission perfectly aligns with my own; that is, ensuring that every child has access to meaningful arts experiences and joyful creative expression, and that every school embraces the transformative power of arts education to lift up their communities.”
