(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) – Daniel A. Lewis, a family law attorney with Hatcher Law Group, recently graduated from the Arts & Science Council’s (ASC) Cultural Leadership Training (CLT) Program. A ceremony was held on the stage of the Knight Theatre at Levine Center for the Arts to celebrate the occasion.
The ASC describes the nine-month CLT course as an “innovative program designed to connect emerging leaders with their cultural passion and prepare them to serve on boards of nonprofit organizations in Mecklenburg County.”
“I continue to be amazed, year after year, at the talent, passion, and enthusiasm I encounter among participants in this program as well as what they then go on to contribute to the arts, culture and community,” said Katherine Mooring, ASC senior vice president of programs and services. “Their dedication and commitment has, and will continue to have, an enormous impact.”
Mr. Lewis has been appointed to the board of directors of Clayworks and named as the board Secretary. He will serve a three-year term.
Clayworks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of ceramic arts, advancement of artists and students, and enrichment of the communities it serves. The organization offers ceramics classes, specialized workshops, studio space rental for individual ceramists, and a gallery which promotes and sells the work of both faculty and professional artists.
Mr. Lewis represents clients in a broad range of family law matters including divorce, child custody and child support, alimony, equitable distribution of property and domestic violence. He serves on the executive committee of the Mecklenburg County Collaborative Family Law Practice Group and regularly volunteers with the Mecklenburg County Women’s Commission’s Family Law Clinic. He is also a volunteer attorney with the Safe Alliance Legal Representation Project, helping victims of domestic violence obtain protective orders.
