Nancy Brozek is the Director of Development and Community Relations for the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre. As a life-long appreciator of live theatre, her involvement with the Civic Theatre is like that of a kid in a candy store: fascinating and rewarding. Another life-long passion for Nancy is the importance of volunteerism. From her younger days with the Girls Scouts to her current role with WGVU Engage Women & Girls Lead Steering and Advisory Committees, Nancy has tried to find ways to give back to the communities in which she lives and works.
Nancy is a member of her church council, a volunteer with the American Cancer Society annual summer camp and involved with the Grand Rapids Cultural Marketing Group. She most recently has had the honor of serving on the inaugural Gazelle Girl Half Marathon and 5K Steering and Advisory Committee. This volunteer effort motivated her to run her first Half Marathon (April 13, 2013).
Nancy’s involvement with WGVU comes from her passion for arts/culture and desires to positively impact the quality of life for all persons. Forty years ago, when WGVU launched its first television broadcast, Nancy was with them, enjoying shows like The Electric Company and ZOOM. Today she looks forward to radio broadcasts from the the WGVU Morning Show with Shelley Irwin, Diane Rehm, This American Life, Fresh Air and All Things Considered. Nancy supports WGVU Engage Women & Girls Lead and WGVU Engage ART because, “Public broadcasting is a part of my life. It has given me joy, knowledge, and perspective on life outside of my own world. As a receiver of these gifts, it is my pleasure to give back in some way. We, as a community, must continue to support Public Media,” she says.
Married to Tom Brozek, she and Tom are recent ‘empty-nesters’ providing them both with more time to give back to their communities. They have a blended family of six children, and two grandchildren. The make their home in New Era.
