     "When I speak about the role of an arts council in a community, I frequently use DIHAC as an example.  You and the board have been thoughtful, careful stewards of the grant funding DIHAC has received.  You have  planned your programming to be responsive to the needs​ of the community, carefully balancing the tried and true with the new and challenging.  Your programs have brought new experiences to the folks who live on Dauphin Island and given them pride in their heritage and folkways...I can't wait to see what you all do next.".
