Introducing our new Media Coordinator!

As announced a few weeks ago in the newsletter, Wapello County received an Iowa Community Cultural Grant to hire a part-time media coordinator.  I’m happy to report that we have now hired someone for the position!  Brian Chambers of Eddyville will start tomorrow as media coordinator for Wapello County.  Brian will be bringing a wealth of experience with him and I’m happy to have him on board. 

Brian will work 28 hours per week, half of those working directly with projects at the American Gothic House Center.  At the Center he will assist with the promotion of tours, educational programs, and assist with social media and photography of our events.  He might even write a newsletter or two along the way! 

In addition to his work here, Brian will promote the numerous other cultural and tourism attractions and events in Wapello County. Examples of these include the Airpower Museum, Ottumwa Community Players, Wapello County Historical Society, Naval Air Station project, and Wapello County Conservation Board.  The ultimate goal is for the American Gothic House Center and these additional entities attain more participation, merchandise sales, and fundraising.

Brian’s first day will tomorrow, July 27, so expect to hear more in the coming week and months!
