Reid is probably best known for his role as “Venus Flytrap” on the 1970s television show “WKRP in Cincinnati.” Since then, he and his wife, Daphne Maxell Reid, have founded their own production studio, New Millennium Studios in Petersburg, where they produce films, TV series and other entertainment.

Reid joins on the Tredegar board architect Rachel O. Flynn, urban planner Anne Joline Wilkes and Richmond attorney O. Randolph “Randy” Rollins.

Tredegar is located along the James River in Richmond. It strives to interpret the Civil War from three perspectives: Union, Confederate and African American.

    Second, after speaking to some schools you should attend some seminars that are being held at the schools to get a feel for the teaching styles and curriculum. When choosing a school, the size of the class is very important. The larger the class the less hands on practice you will have. However, classes that are too small will not provide you with more examples or ideas.
