STEVE WYATT NAMED EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF LCHS
Steve M. Wyatt will join the Lincoln County Historical Society (LCHS)
as its new executive director on March 12. Wyatt, who has 20 years of
museum experience, was curator for the Society from 1993 to 2001. Since
then, he has gained experience in management, fund raising, and
marketing, working at the Southern Oregon Historical Society, the Utah
Museum of Fine Arts, and the Washington Heritage Center in Olympia.
"I’m glad to be returning both to Oregon and the Lincoln County
Historical Society. I’m very excited about the Pacific Maritime &
Heritage Center and think this is a grand time to be at the helm of
LCHS," Wyatt said.
"We’re thrilled to have Steve return to LCHS, this time as executive
director, and impressed with the experience he has gained since leaving
here," Bart January, president of LCHS, said.
Except for his time in Utah and Washington, Wyatt is a lifelong
resident of Oregon. "My family has lived in Oregon since the late 1800s.
My grandparents lived on the Siletz Bay and Siletz River in the 1960s
and 70s. I fell in love with the Central Oregon Coast during the
summers I spent with them," Wyatt said.
