Susan Tissot Hired as new Executive Director

The Lincoln County Historical Society is pleased to welcome Susan M.G. Tissot as the new executive director of their organization as of May 2, 2022. Tissot is a graduate of Oregon State University, where she earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Tissot is no stranger to Lincoln County, as she previously worked at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in the 1980s in exhibit development.

Returning to her professional roots with more than 30 years of experience, including 19 years of executive director experience in museums in five western states — including Clark County, Wash., and Coos Bay, Ore. — Tissot brings with her an impressive list of qualifications in museum development, grant writing, fundraising and nonprofit management.
