News Release, Calvert Marine Museum
SOLOMONS, MD – October 16, 2019 – The Calvert Marine Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of Rachelle Green as its new Deputy Director of Education and Special Programs. With more than a decade of working as a preservationist, educator, and museum administrator, Green brings a wealth of experience to CMM.
Rachelle Green is a Delaware native and has lived in Calvert County for the past four years. She holds a master’s degree in Historic Preservation from the University of Kentucky, and a second master’s degree in Secondary Education from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
In addition, Green earned a museum studies certificate from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. She has twelve years of experience, both as a classroom teacher and in museums.
Most recently, she has served as the Director of Education, Assistant Director, and then Acting Director for Jefferson Patterson Park in St. Leonard, Maryland.
The Deputy Director position became vacant upon the promotion of current Director Jeffrey Murray. Murray, who served as both Director and Deputy Director concurrently for nearly two months, said of Rachelle’s arrival, “I am beyond thrilled that she is joining our talented staff at the Calvert Marine Museum, and I know that her presence is already making a positive impact.”
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
