The Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs has recently promoted Bridget Wallace to the position of volunteer services coordinator, and has hired three new staff members—Kelly Ewing, Dylan Lister and Jack Witzman.
As a member of the division’s Horticulture Team, Dylan Lister provides landscape support-services at the agency’s sites, helping to maintain a beautiful and safe natural environment that complements the historic nature of the individual properties. Prior to joining the division, the Greenwood, Del. resident worked in all aspects of agricultural production at Lea View Farms in his home town. He studied agricultural production at Delaware Technical and Community College and at Delmar High School.
Jack Witzman brings a wealth of experience to his position as a historic-site interpreter at the New Castle Court House Museum. He volunteered for over eight years at Fort Delaware State Park as a first-person Civil War re-enactor, and has participated in several historical-theater productions in the New Castle vicinity. Now retired, the Wilmington resident enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a financial and business analyst for several companies in the region, and as a financial specialist for the city of New Castle. As a historic-site interpreter dressed in period clothing, Witzman will add a human face to Delaware history by bringing the people and events of the past to life.
