Lori Botkin

Executive Director Highland Museum and Heritage Center

Professional Bio

I am the new Executive Director of the Highland Historical Society. In 2017 the Society received a grant for an assistant to the Director to accession a very large collection. I was hired for a one year position starting July 1, 2017. As of June 30, 2018 the previous Director submitted her resignation and since I was already working for the Society, they offered me the position on a trial basis. I have no prior museum training and what I know I have learned in just the past year. I found I love the job. My duties include everything from accessioning, setting up exhibits and managing docents to running the office, shoveling snow off the sidewalk and cleaning the bathroom.
