KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The president of the Liberty Memorial and the National World War I Museum in Kansas City has resigned.
Brian Alexander, president and chief executive officer of the memorial since 2007, told Mary Cohen, chairwoman of the memorial's board of trustees, he was resigning on Monday. The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/RN3i8vtar) reports that the full board accepted his resignation Thursday.
Cohen praised Alexander's work for the memorial and said it was Alexander's decision to resign. She said the decision was not made at the request of the board.
Cohen will be interim president of the memorial and museum while a national search for a new president and CEO gets under way.
