RJC Dance Director Kathy Williams, OLY, has been recognised as a 'Leeds Hero' in a public art installation on Leeds Waterfront.
Supported by The Canal & River Trust and Leeds City Council, Kathy was chosen as part of a public consultation, and represents the theme of 'community'. ‘Leeds Heroes’ celebrates people from Leeds who have made a positive impact and whose accomplishments deserve to be acknowledged. The installation overlooks the River Aire and Fearns Island, near Crown Point Bridge on a well-used thoroughfare past Leeds Dock and is part of Leeds Waterfront Art Trail.
Kathy commented: "I am thrilled and totally honoured to have been nominated and recognised as a Hero of Leeds (Community). The power of visibility is immeasurable. Through my work at RJC Dance I will continue to champion the legacy of diverse communities and to nurture, develop and inspire children, young people, adults and elders."
We are all so proud of Kathy, and are delighted our long-held belief that she is a hero is now official.
