Flint Hills Discovery Center director resigns

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- The Flint Hills Discovery Center is losing its director.

Bob Workman, director of the center, is leaving the post with the city of Manhattan, to become director of the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Qd6IzP ) that Manhattan city manager Ron Fehr announced the move Wednesday. Workman will stay on at the Flint Hills Discovery Center through mid-January and will help with the search for his replacement.

During its first six months of operation, the Flint Hills Discovery Center has exceeded its 2012 attendance and revenue goals. As of Oct. 31, nearly 47,000 people have paid admission to the center, and another 7,100 have attended special events and programs.
