Welcome New Joel Lane Museum House Director

Please join me in welcoming Meaghan Nappo as the new director of the Joel Lane Museum House. Meaghan comes to us from the University of Georgia where she honed her management skills coordinating a transition program for freshmen, as well as a scholarship for first generation students. She is pleased to return to her home town, where she has fond memories of a class trip to the Joel Lane House. She studied at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, earning a B.A. in history and an M.A. in public history. Meaghan is excited about resuming her chosen career, having served as the weekend manager of the Latimer House for fourteen months while she was at UNCW.

Meaghan is on board, but we haven’t bid farewell to Belle Long yet. We are very grateful to Belle for staying on until the middle of this month to facilitate the transition. Belle’s many years of experience managing the Joel Lane Museum House have proven invaluable, and we look forward to her future involvement as a volunteer.

I hope you will stop in soon to meet Meaghan and extend best wishes to Belle for a long and happy retirement.
