Kim Parker, executive director of the O. Winston Link Museum in Roanoke, has stepped down.
Her resignation came earlier this month, said Jeanne Bollendorf, executive director of the Historical Society of Western Virginia, which oversees the Link Museum. Bollendorf declined to give further details, calling it a personnel matter.
Parker was hired as program coordinator for the museum nine years ago, before it opening to the public, and became executive director within a year, Bollendorf said.
“We really appreciate the work she’s done,” Bollendorf said. “She’s moving on to new things and we wish her well.”
Bollendorf will double as executor director of the Link Museum while the Historical Society’s other museum charge, the History Museum of Western Virginia, prepares to move back to Center in the Square this coming spring.
The historical society intends to take its time finding the right replacement for the job, she said.
