Council of Educators

In the summer of 2014, the Council of Educators was formed to serve as a planning and advisory group to develop both short and long-term projects with the Museum in cooperation with Leon County and surrounding area schools. The Council consists of teachers (past and present) as well as representation from local arts organizations. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Council of Educators contact: Viki D. Thompson Wylder, the Curator of Education, (850) 645-4681 or Below is a list of the Council’s current members.
