BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Beauvoir is once again searching for a new executive director. Less than two months after hiring Stephen McKinney, the museum's board of directors has decided to part ways with McKinney.
McKinney was hired on June 22. WLOX learned on Friday that Beauvoir's board has terminated McKinney. The board declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding the decision, saying only that it is a personnel matter. The termination is effective Friday.
A search for a new executive director is already underway. In the meantime, board members will run the day-to-day operations of the historic last home of Jefferson Davis.
