A Hopkinsville native is returning to her hometown to take the helm of a local organization.
During the public comments portion of tonight’s city council meeting, Pennyroyal Area Museum Board Chairman Dave Fernandez proudly announced that Hopkinsville native and Hopkinsville High School Alumni Alissa Keller has been hired as the new museum director.
According to Fernandez, he is proud to accomplish one of his goals that he made while he was on the city council in bringing back young adults after they graduate from college and offering them jobs.
Keller’s reception is scheduled to take place Tuesday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Pennyroyal Area Museum located at 217 East 9th Street.
