The executive director of the MSU Riley Center for the past 15 years has announced his retirement. Being drawn to the renovation of the theatre over 15 years ago, Dennis Sankovich says the proximity of Meridian in relation to other cities has helped it be successful. He's from Ohio originally, where he helped to renovate a famous theatre there, and now he plans to go back to his hometown. He says he will miss the people here in meridian the most.
“The Patrons and our sponsors and all the people that support the Riley Center—it’s just a terrific group of people. I’ve just really enjoyed being with everyone and getting to know all of those people. It’s been great,” said Sankovitch.
Sankovitch's last day will be April 1st.
