Mike Noller, President and CEO, says he wants to "create ever more engaging, inspiring and fun educational programs (for kids of ALL ages, including OLD 50-year-olds like me!)" He also wants to develop and participate in a rewarding and sustainable employee wellness program "so we can live healthier, with more energy and even more passion to educate, entertain and inspire!"
2016 will be a great year for new exhibits! In February, the Rotating Gallery will be changed to a new exhibit, curated by Student Curator Julie Tew. The theme is jewelry, but other details are currently being determined. Also, during the summer, the Korean War exhibit will be renovated and updated. Tim Howard, Curator of Exhibits and Research, says his goal is to have an exhibit completely finished at least 24 hours before the exhibit is scheduled to open. Good luck, Tim!

Tracy Dickson, Operations Director, was a bit more practical. She simply wants to work on not feeding any children to the dinosaurs next year.
