Kathy Costello Henry has lived her entire life, with the exception of a few years while attending college, in the North Bend/Coos Bay area. She has a strong finance, accounting and business background, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in accounting and a Masters of Business Administration. For close to 25 years she has served as the financial Controller for the Coquille Tribe and is thus a significant participant in the Coquille Tribe’s government. As part of her responsibilities with the Tribe, she has been involved in grant funding requests and the administration of grant funding received.
In Kathy’s own words: “I feel that the Egyptian Theatre ‘experience’ holds an important spot in our Community and also in the hearts of many local residents. I feel fortunate to have enjoyed the Egyptian since childhood weekend matinees, high school dates and many, many movies. My husband took me to the Egyptian on our first date. My mother, who passed away, my identical twin sister, Karen, and I have not missed a Christmas musical program.
The preservation of the venue is important to me because I would like to think that the Egyptian can provide new and wonderful experiences to those who do not have a ‘history’ with the Theatre. Also, personally and selfishly, I would love to think that this venue could provide many more new and wonderful experiences for those of us who have enjoyed this opportunity in the past.”
Kathy lives in North Bend with her husband of many years, James.
