On behalf of the board of directors, we would like to invite you to meet our top two candidates for the Executive Director’s Position: Matthew Cadman, Ed.D. and Keni S. Sturgeon, M.A. We are encouraging all members to attend a public “Meet and Greet” at the Museum on Thursday, August 23 at 5:30 pm. In addition to the meet and greet each candidate will give a presentation. Please come join us as we take our final steps in this selection process.

Thursday will be a day of discovery for the candidates and us. They will tour both the Wells House and the Museum. They will meet staff and gain a better understanding of the great programs and events that we do. They will be interviewed by a panel of both board and community leaders. Then they will get to meet the community to wrap up their day.
