Wise Wonders’ Children’s Museum Executive Director, Kelli Toohill, announced that she is stepping down from her role as Executive Director of the Museum at the end of the summer due to her family relocating.
“It has been a thrill to start a non-profit from the ground up. I am excited about the adventure I am about to take with my family, but I am sad to leave the Museum,” says Toohill.
“We are fortunate to have had Kelli at the helm of this organization,” says Shawna Bonini, Board President. “She built a strong foundation at the Museum. We are sad to see her go, but feel confident that she is leaving us in a great position for a seamless transition.”
This news is coming on the heels of two other big changes at the museum. Wise Wonders recently announced their move to 3024 2nd Avenue North. This announcement was made at their annual gala, which also marked the first day for their new Assistant Director, Pete Bolenbaugh.
The mission of Wise Wonders Children’s Museum is to engage curious, creative, and scientific minds in a playful learning environment for all children and families. Central to this mission is supporting STEM education through fun and interactive exhibits that support learning through play. Wise Wonders envisions a connected community that inspires a passion for lifelong family learning.
