CAC of Palo Pinto County names Executive Director


A native of Houston, Libby graduated with honors from Hollins University in Roanoke, Va., where she earned a Bachelor of Arts’ degree in Studio Art, and took many Humanities courses.

Between undergraduate and graduate studies, Libby returned to Houston, where she taught at a preschool and developed and taught after-school art programs for children.

She also volunteered with children’s programs in several Houston non-profit organizations, which included guiding school tours at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Contemporary Arts Museum.

It was while attending the University of Houston, for post-baccalaureate studies in painting and art history, that she worked as an intern at UH’s Blaffer Gallery.

There, she helped edit copy, develop children’s programs and learned of museum education – a way of educating children and adults in the museum setting.

She achieved a Master of Arts in Teaching degree, focusing on museum education, from the George Washington University, in Washington, D.C.

Libby inched her way closer to Palo Pinto County, working in museums in San Antonio and Fort Worth for over 15 years, before taking a job at the Mineral Wells Index, where she worked as reporter-photographer and, most recently, news editor.

When not writing, reading or researching, Libby captures remarkable photos of people, animals and places. In her spare time, and for renewal of her own soul, she is tending to and riding horses.

The CACPPC’s board of directors is delighted and honored to call Libby Cluett to be its executive director.

“It is an honor to be selected by the Children’s Alliance Center board to serve citizens in Palo Pinto County,” Cluett stated. “I learned so much about the community through my work at the newspaper and am ready to take on a role that allows me to use all of my background experience and work more directly to improve the lives of the county’s children.”
