FORT MYERS — IMAG History & Science Center added Rita Davis and Colton Ferry to its board of directors.
The Imaginarium and Southwest Florida History Museum recently merged to become IMAG.
Davis is director of adult and career education with the School District of Lee County. Ferry is managing partner at Coppin Insurance Agency. Both are Fort Myers natives, according to a press release.
“We are thrilled that Rita and Colton have brought their talent and energy to help chart the future of a local institution that had such an influence, although formerly as two separate museums, over their own career aspirations,” says IMAG Executive Director Matthew Johnson in a statement. “Our growing board is diverse but united in its enthusiasm for reaching more and more children and adults with the transformative storytelling power that science and history together can bring.”
Other board members include Jon Ellsworth, Jonathan Romine, Carlos Kelly, Jennifer Powers, Denise Weisinger, Jeff Bayer, Erik Carlson, Britt Gravley, Derrick Isaac, Kathryn Kelly, Shamie Kelly, David Miller and Matt Simmons.
The Imaginarium Science Center and the Southwest Florida History Museum have been under joint leadership for nearly a decade. They have now combined for a new museum experience.
