As the project moves forward, it is attracting the interest of many strong supporters from the greater Jackson community who can contribute to its success. In addition to the board, restoration committee and facilities team, Ella Sharp Museum has offered help with developing exhibits and building a strong museum management structure. Bob Michaels and Mike Ambs with RjM are assisting with marketing and communications plans. Lynne Loftis, retired executive director of the Ella Sharp Museum, is assisting with research and content development. And, the project fits clearly within the promotional objectives of Experience Jackson, Jackson County’s visitor bureau.
