“This year’s Soiree is about taking all of the great things from previous years to the next level – more food, more drinks, more auction items, more entertainment,” said Kathleen Gutting. “Plus, we are hosting the event on a Friday rather than a Thursday to ensure that attendees can truly take the time to relax, enjoy the event and learn about the impact their attendance has on
the success of Minds Eye.”

Changing Faces

Minds Eye’s staff has undergone several changes in the past few months. While we have had the opportunity to welcome two new staff members, we have also had to say goodbye to one longtime staffer.

Jay Neighbors is serving as Minds Eye’s Engineer and is responsible for keeping the station up and running. Jay came to Minds Eye after earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from SIUE. Prior to that, Jay worked in the telephone engineering and fiber optic cable industries. He lives in Bethalto with his wife, Deb, and daughter, Zoe.

Janet Creath came to Minds Eye as our new Development Director. Previously, Janet worked for UCP Easter Seals Heartland as their Director of Annual Giving. Her 24-year career in fundraising has included positions at the St. Louis Science Center, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Incarnate Word Hospital. She lives in High Ridge with her husband, Matt, and daughter, Julie.

In September, over 100 Minds Eye current and former volunteers, listeners and friends got together to bid farewell to Minds Eye Program Director, John Weidlich. John retired after serving on the Minds Eye staff for over 30 years.
