This week, I officially step into my new role as president of the Gettysburg Foundation. The job may be new, but I am no stranger to Gettysburg. While I have had the great opportunity to meet many of you, I take this opportunity to introduce myself to those I have not met.
My family and I are long-time residents of Adams County. Most recently, I served as chief executive officer of the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pa. During my nine years there, together with the support of the board of directors and diligent efforts of the staff, we grew membership, featured several state-of-the-art exhibits, increased educational outreach and hosted an array of programs.
