BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The American Police Hall of Fame & Museum announced the recent addition of Chrissy Sokol to its staff. Sokol has accepted the role of Director of Museum Education and will be overseeing field trips, educational activities and exhibits, outreach and interaction with teachers, parents and museum visitors.
“Chrissy has worked with us behind the scenes for several months to refine some of our activities,” said CEO Barry Shepherd.
“We love her enthusiasm, and her credentials are impeccable, including her background as an educator and safety specialist at Kennedy Space Center and as Operations Manager at the Astronaut Hall of Fame. We feel truly fortunate to have her on board.”
Shepherd added that the addition of a museum educator is only one part of the current growth pattern at the facility.
“You’ll be hearing from us in a big way in the months and years ahead,” he noted.
“Our educational outreach is just the beginning of our dynamic growth as we strive to our honor our ‘thin blue line,’ develop compelling attractions in the Brevard region, and build empathetic relationships between law enforcement and our civilian population.”
Sokol’s first order of business will be connecting with the county schools and teachers and continuing the development of a variety of forensic STEM activities and lessons at the museum.
She will be working with Tara Dixon Engel, VP of Training & Strategic Development, to refine plans for a STEM-based 21st Century Crime Lab and to secure sponsors and funders for this exciting approach to science and technology in the public safety arena.
Plans are also in the works for developing a STEAM Summer Camp in partnership with the American Space Museum in Titusville.
