By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Frank Bennett, the CEO of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, announced that he is stepping down from the position at the end of June. 

Bennett shared the news on Facebook Wednesday. He said it's been an honor to play a role in the success of the organization. He expressed his appreciation to staff, volunteers, donors and other stakeholders he has worked with over the past ten years. 

Bennett said, "Looking back, I can say without hesitation that I gained far more from the experience than the contribution I have made."

He shared examples of what he called "countless blessings" he received while at the museum. They included times when people of all ages were immersed in the exhibits or participated in hands-on projects and came away with a greater appreciation of the fiber arts. He expressed gratitude, "for this windfall of priceless experiences."

As for his future, Bennett says he wants to stay in Paducah because the city has become his home and he wants to be part of its future. He hopes to find new work with an organization with big goals and the potential to have a meaningful impact in the area.
