Providence, RI – The Providence Preservation Society (PPS) announced that Kelsey Mullen has joined the organization as director of education. She is the first person in the role since 2011.
Mullen will be asked to create a 21st-century version of the Children’s Heritage Education Program that ran from 1985 to 2011, which taught Providence’s history and architecture. She will also lead the development of a new program that focuses on teaching skills that apply to working on buildings built before 1945.
Mullen was the public programs manager at the Newport Restoration Foundation. Prior to that, she was director of public programming and education at The Mount, Edith Wharton’s Home in Lenox, Mass., and education assistant at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.
