TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The executive director of the CANDLES Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute has announced her resignation.
Dorothy Chambers has been with the museum for about five years.
According to a post on the CANDLES Holocaust Museum Facebook page, her resignation will be effective as of April 1st.
“One of my priorities as executive director has been to professionalize the museum, and to make sure there are sound processes in place that will support its continued growth and future plans,” Chambers said in the Facebook post. “We have made great strides, so I feel it’s an appropriate time for me to step aside and allow for new leadership to take CANDLES to the next stage.”
Deputy Director Leah Simpson will serve as the interim executive director until the museum board fills the position.
