Bryce Peery is the ZACC's Bob Ross. Once a month (or more for private parties!) Bryce dons a Bob Ross wig and teaches the monthly class. Bryce might as well be the reencarnation of Bob Ross for he is just as helpful, friendly, and talented. But, luckily Bryce is also his own person with a talent that surpasses happy little trees and a humor that spreads throughout the ZACC.
Cheryl Cote has been part of the ZACC family for 2 and a half years and we hope she'll be with us for years to come. You've probably met Cheryl if you've come into the ZACC on Saturday or to one of our annual events you've most likely met this volunteering goddess. She is a highlight-granter. If you meet Cheryl take time out of your day to have a conversation with her--you won't regret it and you'll have a new friend. And we don't mean a simple Facebook friend!
Suzanne DeMarinis has been with the ZACC for 2 and a half years, but for the ZACC it feels like she has always been here. If you've popped into the ZACC on a Saturday you might have met Suzanne, or if you've gotten a beverage at our Annual Block Party, Mini Show, or Halloween event. If you've been at the ZACC and then realized a room grew brighter, that would be Suzanne entering the room.
