Notable Range history, culture center names new CEO

Lisa Vesel, former communications official for the Hibbing hospital, was named the permanent CEO of the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm last Friday. She replaces Paul Dwyer who had been the interim CEO after the facility re-opened this year from its embarrassing shutdown last year. It’s been good to see the place open, fulfilling its purpose in showcasing Iron Range culture and history, both of which remain among the nation’s richest.

Congratulations to Lisa, who gave me some valuable insight for my book about her experience moving to the Iron Range several years ago. I’ll go on the record hoping she can continue the progress made under Dwyer, who deserves a lot of credit for refocusing the facility on a grassroots, locally-oriented mission. Good luck to Paul in his future endeavors as well.
