What Happened This Month:
Although the museum was quiet with a few tours, we had a celebration for our very own Collections Manager. Rachel Whitney graduated from The University of Oklahoma with her Master of Arts Degree for Museum Studies in December 2020. She had received her Bachelor of Arts for Museum Studies from University of Central Oklahoma in May 2015. She applied to join our museum, not even a week after her 2015 graduation, and we hired her that month. 2020 was a struggle of a year, but we ended the year with a celebration - Congrats, Rachel Whitney!
