New MOD director: Kelley Bass

Posted By on Tue, Nov 27, 2012 at 11:02 AM


Kelley Bass, known to many as the assistant dean for external affairs in the Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock but perhaps to more as a former employee of and longtime writer on food and music for Arkansas Times, has been hired as CEO of the Museum of Discovery, starting Jan. 1.

Bass will succeed Nan Selz, whose tenure saw the revamping of the interactive science museum with help from a $9.2 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. Bass has been a member of the museum's board for nearly three years.

Before joining the staff of UALR, Bass spent nine years at Acxiom and was a reporter and editor at the Arkansas Gazette before joining the Times. It should also be noted that he is senior editor Max Brantley's brother-in-law.

Diane LaFollette will remain as chief operating officer at the museum.
