Farewell to Raney Bench

This past week we bid farewell to Raney Bench, Curator of Education, as she resigned to become the new executive director of the Seal Cove Auto Museum.  During her seven years at the Abbe, Raney has been instrumental in the current vision and strategic direction of the institution.  She has been an extraordinary educator and advocate and her connections and relationships locally and throughout the tribal communities have been invaluable.  The staff, trustees, volunteers and the Abbe community will miss her but we wish her all the best in her new adventure.
