The Brenham Heritage Museum has named a new executive director.
David Thomas will take over the position and be in charge of the day-to-day operations and primary responsibilities of the museum.
Thomas recently served as executive director of the Lake Jackson Historical Association, and before that was the collections manager and registrar at the Bryan Museum in Galveston.
Thomas is a graduate of the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Art History/Architecture and a Master’s in Public Administration.
Board President Tiffany Morisak said the board feels confident that Thomas will be a great fit for the Brenham Heritage Museum and will serve it and the community well as the organization continues to fundraise and implement additional phases of exhibits to its newly renovated facility.
The Brenham museum’s former executive director, Mike Vance, told KWHI he plans to continue working with Core Design Studio of Houston to research and create the history content for the additional permanent exhibits for the second and third phases of the museum’s master plan.
The museum will host a meet and greet with Thomas on Wednesday, June 7th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The meet and greet will coincide with the museum’s opening of its Juneteenth exhibit in the Blue Bell Gallery.
