The Wenatchee Valley Museum has a new director. The Board of Trustees has contracted with Sandy Cohen of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Board president Karen Russell says they received a lot of applications from very qualified candidates, locally and nationally. She says Cohen, who most recently served as director of the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, has a lot of experience in running museums. She says that's important as the Museum has transitioned from being a city department to being a stand-alone.
Cohen and his wife Debbie will be relocating to Wenatchee and will begin his new post no later than June 15th. He fills a position vacated by Brenda Abney in December.
