ST. CLOUD - The Stearns History Museum and Research Center is in need of a new Executive Director.

Former Director Charlene Akers stepped down last month, after three years on the job.

Annette Atkins will serve as the interim Executive Director.  She's a professor with the College of St. Benedict and St. John's University.

The museum's Board of Directors will immediately begin the process of finding a new director.  They expect to make the appointment in the spring.
