Cosgrove stepping down at Historical Society

Theresa Cosgrove will step down as executive director of the Bainbridge Island Historical Society, after two years leading the nonprofit.

The announcement was made by BIHS Board of Directors president Bernie Baker, Friday afternoon. He said the board had decided to move the society forward without a director position.

"At this point we are not actively looking for a new director," Baker said. "We feel that the staff we have, with more involvement from the board, can fill that gap."

Museum curator Lorraine Scott, administrative assistant Hank Helm, outreach coordinator Katy Curtis and facilities coordinator Rick Chandler will stay on staff.

Baker said the "An Island History" exhibit will continue through the winter and the society will be working to extend museum hours.
