Board of Directors

Since the college's inception, a strong Board of Directors has provided insight, business acumen, and oversight, which has led to the increase in staff members, students, and extended community reach. Their generational and entrepreneurial vision has guided Compass in producing a culture of artists who are led by God and determined to make a positive difference with their talent.
