Michael Langley

Michael Langley was raised in Tracy at a time when Tracy schools offered arts opportunities to all students. As a journalist, Michael worked in communities across the nation and witnessed just how important public centers, dedicated to the celebration and education of the arts, were in places like Sacramento, Washington, D.C. and Colorado Springs. Michael volunteered in 2006 and 2007 to help to open the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts and carries with him the ideals that are the foundation of its rehabilitation: this is the community's center and the Grand Foundation is the community's voice and advocate. When Michael returned to Tracy in 2013 as the editor of the Tracy Press, he was excited to be able to dedicate himself once again to the Grand Foundation's mission.
