Mila Gibson

August 7, 2010

Today I received a recommendation from Mila Gibson on my Linked In Account. And in turn, I wrote one for her. So I wanted to share it with you on my blog. Thank you Mila for all the wonderful years at Amarillo Opera.

Mila Gibson has been a beneficial influence to myself and pages of others that have lived in and ventured through working with the Amarillo Opera. She has a way to round up talent in needed areas to get the job done for the professional opera company. Her list of achievements is as long as her gift of opportunities she gives to others. Many young singers have grown up in the program and gone on to be successful opera or theater stars.
Mila Gibson allowed me to have full reign to come up with ideas to promote the opera from the beginning. We would work late nights to meet deadlines. And with her direction, we finalized direct mail, brochures, posters, inserts and a list of other projects through many years. Her patience with me as a volunteer, and working with me when I had the time to make the changes (because I had a full time job) showed her flexibility and persistence to make sure whatever needed to be done, got done. She is the most tireless worker I have ever met with the biggest heart for all those around her.

Mila Gibson has been a true dear friend of mine through working with her in Marketing/Graphic Design since 1996 for the Amarillo Opera. We worked together to create the logo all those years ago. Set up the first brochure in color and started a wonderful working relationship that has lasted and I am certain will last many more years to come. I have watched Mila nurture so many singers lives, bringing out the best in themselves, striving to work as a family because of who she is, and how she makes you want to do your best for her as a mentor. I was on stage with her when she did the lead role in Madam Butterfly. What tireless hours she kept, then and always. Many nights I met with her very late, making last minute changes in the program after she finished with the rehearsals and cast notes. I cannot say enough about Mila’s dedication to those she worked with and to the Amarillo Opera. Those are HUGE shoes to fill. Such dedication she had in raising money so the productions could be professional, so the sets could match the talent on stage. I gave my services free of charge for many years because I believed in Mila’s dream. And when the Globe News Center of the Performing Arts doors were opened, I don’t think you could have found a more excited person to bring the company to the stage. This has been her family, I am so proud to have worked beside this woman. Not sure if Mila really knows how to relax, but I know she deserves it. God bless you Mila. Thank you for everything!!
