Chris Dyer - Chief Executive Officer

Chris Dyer - Chief Executive Officer

Chris Dyer hails from China Spring, Texas, and earned an undergraduate degree from Baylor University in museum science and forensic anthropology and a graduate degree from Texas Tech University in museum studies. As a youth Chris spent an inordinate amount of time visiting zoos and museums, skateboarding, and playing soccer and guitar. (Not much has changed!) Chris confesses that he was not always the best student in the classroom but knew that his career path was set after the first time he experienced the creative learning environment offered by museums. He credits his grandmother for his career path because of her willingness to indulge his interests in natural history and the arts, and her insistence that he spend as much time as possible outdoors. Things came full circle for Chris when he was awarded the Texas Historical Commissions’ John L. Nau, III Award of Excellence in Museums in 2006 and the Texas Art Education Association Texas Friend of the Arts Award in 2014.
