New Assistant Curator
We would like to wish Jessica all the best in her future endeavours. We have appreciated the joy and energy she has brought to our team. Jessica’s work has been characterized by a high degree of professionalism in her maintenance of the museum’s artifact collection and care of our heritage buildings; creativity and resourcefulness in researching and preparing exhibits; and enthusiasm in sharing the Russian Mennonite story with our museum’s guests. She will be missed, and our warm wishes go with her as she leaves MHV this week to pursue new adventures and further studies.
To fill the vacancy created by Jessica’s departure, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Adrienne Dewsberry, who takes over as our new Assistant Curator this week. Adrienne brings to the position a background in history, archeology, and museum studies, with experience in various types of museum facilities. She worked at Fort William Historical Park, an open-air historic site in Thunder Bay, for over 8 years. She also completed her practicum for her museum training at Lougheed House Museum, a National and Provincial Historic Site in Calgary, Alberta, this last summer. We are delighted to welcome Adrienne to the MHV team.
