Sally Adams


For over 20 years I taught elementary, middle and high school students. During my teaching career, I acted as department head for one of Tulsa, Oklahoma’s most prestigious educational arts programs at Holland Hall School. I also won the first Collins Award for outstanding teaching at that school and remain the only performing arts educator to have received the award.  I have produced and directed plays for school, community, and professional theater. I have also been the lead singer for several musical groups singing jazz, rock, blues and contemporary music for over 20 years.   

I am a five-year veteran with the nationally recognized Leadership Oklahoma program working as an arts facilitator. In that role, I met with business leaders from across the state raising awareness of the value of arts education. My podcast, SallyPAL, has thousands of downloads and over 50 episodes in which I explored creating original work for a live audience.

My work in the performing arts led me to become a board member on several theater boards in Oklahoma. When my husband and I retired to Colonial Beach I discovered a new kind of volunteerism and enjoy participating on boards with complimentary missions. Beach, Arts, Music, and Mentoring (BAMM) serves the needs of students and educators in Colonial Beach. Downtown Colonial Beach is a Main Street Affiliate administering the Sip N’ Stroll program and serving to improve the downtown area. My work as the Town’s Parks, Recreation, and Events Department Director allows me to help build community by developing programs and improving parks for people of all ages.
