Quilt museum CEO stepping down after nearly a decade

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — The CEO of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah will step down later this year after serving in the position for nearly 10 years. The museum said in a statement that Frank Bennett’s last day will be June 30. During his tenure, he saw visitation increase by more than 50% and the museum’s programming has drawn national attention. Bennett told The Paducah Sun he was leaving due to his father’s health. The museum said he would conduct a national search for a new CEO and hopes to have someone in place by June.
