May 20, 2011 Scott Harris Accepts Position at James Monroe Museum and Library

NEW MARKET -- If Scott Harris could be cloned, the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation would endorse such cutting-edge technology.

Scott Harris"That'd be great," said Beth Stern, the organization's policy and communications director. "There aren't enough superlatives [for him]."

In Harris, the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park's director, the foundation has a worthy partner who recognizes the importance of the battlefield, can tell its story in a compelling way and attract tourists to visit, she said. That made Thursday a bittersweet day for Stern, as Harris announced he is leaving New Market after 10 years to become director of the James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library in Fredericksburg, beginning July 1.

"He's been really great at listening to partners and knowing that partnership is a two-way street," she said. "He's an example of the kind of leader that is important to have."

Harris' last day will be June 30, although he will continue living in Broadway until his daughter graduates from high school next year, he wrote in an email to friends and colleagues Thursday.
