NCSE is pleased to announce the addition of Sarah B. George of the University of Utah to its board of directors. Previously the executive director of the National History Museum of Utah from 1992 to 2019, George is now the University of Utah's chief philanthropy officer. "I'm thrilled to be able to aid NCSE in its important and invaluable work in supporting and defending science education," George commented.
On NCSE's board of directors George joins Kenneth R. Miller, Lorne Trottier, Benjamin D. Santer, Michael Haas, Vicki Chandler, Michael B. Lubic, Michael E. Mann, Naomi Oreskes, and Barry Polisky. At the same time that George joined the board, Robert "Mac" West departed, having served on the board a record thirty years — from 1986 to 1988 and again from 1992 to 2020, for all but two of those years as secretary.
"We're going to miss Mac West," NCSE's executive director Ann Reid commented. "As a member of NCSE's board from the beginning he was a model of dedication and support, and his connections to the world of informal science education were invaluable. But we are excited to welcome Sarah George to the board, and I'm confident that she will make a great contribution in helping to guide the organization's efforts in the years to come."
