Hastings Museum selects longtime employee as new director

HASTINGS, Neb. -- There's new leadership at a central Nebraska museum.

Teresa Kreutzer-Hodson has worked at the Hastings Museum for nearly 25 years, and now she's the new director.

During Monday night's Hastings City Council meeting, Kreutzer-Hodson was unanimously approved as the new director. She had been serving as the interim director since the former director, Rebecca Matticks, resigned in June.

Kreutzer-Hodson has been working with the museum since 1996. She was previously the museum's curator of collections and program director.

The museum says it interviewed several candidates, both internal and external.
