New museum manager at John Wesley Powell Museum
Tim Glenn is the new manager for the John Wesley Powell museum. Tim grew up in Salt Lake, graduated from the University of Utah in 2011 with a Master's Degree in Environmental History in 2011, and did a lot of studying of John Wesley Powell, so the museum job is a natural fit.
He worked at a non-profit in Salt Lake City called Red Butte Gardens where they do a lot of programming for kids and adults via weekend classes and summer camps. He thinks there's a few things that he could carry over from his experience there.
He would like to immediately expand the museum's membership by giving benefits and discounts to "Friends of the Museum", which would be a way for businesses and individuals to support the museum and get something back.
Tim also is looking to partner with other museums in the area. Tim has only been in Green River a short time, but he loves it. He's excited about Green River's location and how many things there are to do in the area. He would like to add more events to the museum and also traveling displays.
