Historic St. Mary’s City has named Sharol Yeatman their new External Relations Manager. Ms. Yeatman has worked with the museum for over ten years, and brings with her an extensive background in theater, as well as museum programming.
In her previous position as Public Programs Manager at Historic St. Mary’s City, Sharol oversaw group tours and educational summer camps; developed Shakespeare in the City, a summer partnership with The Newtowne Players; and helped create both the Adults Only tours (winner of the 2019 Historic Preservation Award), and Lost City, a free trick-or-treating event. Understanding the changes in audience needs, Ms. Yeatman also developed social narratives to assist students in preparing for their visit to the museum, and spearheaded the family pack program.
Explained Sharol, “Having worked as a museum guide and interpreter as well as working behind the scenes on programs and tours, allowed for a good glimpse into what the museum has to offer. I look forward to highlighting all aspects of Historic St. Mary’s City, whether it’s the gorgeous wedding venues, top notch research staff and their discoveries, or the primitive campgrounds. Being able to share the story of Historic St. Mary’s City and the beauty of its landscape is a privilege.”
