As reported first by Ardis at Keepapitchinin, Ron Romig, MHA President and recently displaced Community of Christ archivist, has been appointed as the new site director for the Kirtland Temple. From Ardis:
The Community of Christ announced today that Ron Romig, outgoing archivist of the Community of Christ, has been appointed as the new site director of the Kirtland Temple. This means that we ? the entire body of Restoration churches ? will retain access to his expertise and his involvement in our history.
Ron is also current president of the Mormon History Association.
Former Kirtland site director Barb Walden is moving to Kentucky with her husband, who has accepted a post with the Kentucky Historical Society.
For those of you who know Ron, this is a wonderful turn of events that keeps Ron employed and actively involved in Mormon/Restoration studies. Please join those of us here at the Juvenile Instructor in congratulating Ron and the Community of Christ.
