Sci-Port Board Chairman Tells What Went Wrong [VIDEO]
Rich Lamb, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Shreveport's Sci-Port Discovery Center, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the financially beleaguered museum, its current situation and plans for the future.
Lamb, who has been a member of the board of directors since early 2015, became board chairman in December of last year. He tells KEEL listeners that he "doesn't want to misrepresent" or "say that the future of Shreveport's downtown museum is grand;" but, he says, "We're making small strides, not only in reopening Sci-Port, but in identifying what happened."
Citing financial difficulties, Sci-Port closed in early September of 2017, one of them being an annual payroll in excess of $2 million. When they closed, 72 employees lost their jobs. The museum partially reopened in early March.
