RYE (AP) — The head of the Rye-based Seacoast Science Center since its inception in 1992 has announced she will retire next spring.
The Portsmouth Herald reports Wendy Lull said it's time for the marine science education organization to be handed over to a new leader who can direct its future course.
Lull oversaw the merger of Friends of Odiorne Point and SSC Inc. into Seacoast Science Center Inc. She then led the transition from operating the center as a division of New Hampshire Audubon to an independent nonprofit entity in 2002.
Board Chairman Richard Samdperil says the board is grateful that Lull stayed onboard for so long and she's leaving the nonprofit in "great position" moving forward.
More than 80,000 visitors and 25,000 students participate in center programs each year.
