LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Friday, the Texas Forestry Museum welcomed a new director.

Lufkin native Mary Alice Cook is taking over as director of the museum after receiving a Master's of History from SFA.

Cook and her husband have lived in Alaska for 35 years and she says returning to her home town is a dream come true.

"Being offered this job and the chance to come back here after all these years and to do something like this which is so fun and so exciting is awesome and its sort of like a dream that I'm really here," said Cook.

Cook says she's got plenty of plans and visions for the museum. She hopes to upgrade the museum's collection and develop a salt mill exhibit.

The outdoor exhibits are already in the early stages of being upgraded.
