Delaware native Tatiana Copeland was recently appointed to a board of trustees in Washington, D.C. for her involvement in the community.

Few people are better known locally for supporting the arts and other philanthropic endeavors than Tatiana Copeland and her husband Gerret, so it comes as no surprise that President Joe Biden recently appointed her to the board of trustees at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

“The first lady called me a couple of months ago and asked if I would be interested in serving,” Copeland recalls. “I said, ‘Definitely, yes, it’s been on my bucket list.’” Copeland, a native of Germany by way of Denmark and Argentina, will serve a six-year term for the arts center, which opened in 1971.

Copeland is involved with many boards and nonprofits, including the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Delaware Art Museum and The Grand Opera House in Wilmington, among others.
