The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center's Board of Directors will have to re-start their search for a new Executive Director after the candidate that was going to move into the position had to withdraw for medical reasons.

Spokesperson Ashley Sinner said Interim Executive Director Laurel Turner will continue to fill the role until her contract ends in June and is likely to extend her stay from that point.

"All along I think the goal is to get the right person in the job at the right time," Sinner said. "I don't that there is a deadline per se."

Previous Executive Director Keni Sturgeon left the museum in late October for a job with the Association of Children's Museums to lead strategic initiatives. Sturgeon had been with the museum since 2018.
