To the people of Moab, I’d like to say thank you for supporting the Museum of Moab for the five years that I have been director here. We have had a great time and it has been because of your generous support.

Five years ago, when the museum separated from Grand County, we were worried about keeping the doors open and making sure that Moab’s history was shared. You have rallied with us over the past five years and made it possible for Moab’s museum to flourish.

I’ll be leaving the Museum of Moab but I wanted to make sure to let you know how special that museum is to me and to our community. In the coming years I hope you’ll give your support to the Museum of Moab, enjoy its programs and exhibits and continue to share your history with their dedicated staff.

As I go, I will miss Moab, but I know that its history and future are bright.

Thank you again for all your support of my family, the museum and myself.

—Travis Schenck
