The New England Museum Association recognized Seacoast Science Center President Emerita Wendy Lull with its 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award on October 27 during the 99th Annual NEMA Conference in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
Lull was honored for her decades of service to the museum field, along with her leadership and mentorship work through NEMA and other scientific and cultural organizations.
At the helm of the Seacoast Science Center in Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, NH for 25 years (1992-2017), Lull transformed the non-profit into a thriving independent institution committed to serving the community through hands-on ocean education.
A graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a Master’s Degree in Zoology, Wendy has published scientific papers and business strategy cases, and edited books on the marine environment.
“Wendy Lull is a force of nature in the museum field,” said NEMA Executive Director Dan Yaeger. “Her dynamic leadership has transformed her organization into a leading science center and her caring personality has mentored countless museum professionals through the years. She has made her mark and we are all indebted to her for her service.”
