Last week OCHS Staff ventured out of our historic zone to see what life was like off I-Drive. We were able to visit WonderWorks and the Outta Control Magic Comedy Show. We enjoyed pizza, salad and our drink of choice all while being wildly entertained. Check out what the staff had to say about their experience!

Meet Kimber Davis: OCHS’s Program Coordinator

Posted by Donnita Dampier on Oct 6, 2014 5:16:00 PM

We’re back this month with another team member of the OCHS feature! Last month we shared about Margaret Wallis, our Development Director. Today we’re highlighting Kimber Davis, the Osceola County Historical Society Program Coordinator.

Kimber is a homegrown, Osceola County girl. She grew up in St. Cloud on the shores of Alligator Lake, where she developed a love of the water at a young age. From boating and jet skiing to SCUBA diving and competitive swimming, Kimber has always taken advantage of the year-round Florida sunshine. She was part of the second graduating class of Harmony High School (Go Longhorns!) and then left Osceola County to attend the University of North Florida in Jacksonville.

Farewell Kate, a goodbye to our favorite volunteer-turned-team-member of the OCHS!

We’ve talked a lot lately about becoming a volunteer for the OCHS, heck, we’re even hosting an event on Friday that will help you learn what your niche in volunteering with us could be if you are interested in doing so. We thought it might be fun to not only pay honor to one of our favorite team members (that is now leaving us for retirement! Lucky her!), but show you how her job started at the OCHS thanks to volunteering.

Behind the scenes of the Osceola County Historical Society there are key players making sure we do a good job of keeping history alive in Osceola County. Today we are here to introduce the OCHS Marketing and Events Director, Rachel McIntee. We’ve put Rachel on the spot with a little question and answer session, giving you the inside scoop on one of our newest employees.

Let’s start at the beginning. Where did you grow up?
Well, I was born and raised in Osceola county. I even went to Osceola High School (and still have a hard time spelling kowboy without the ‘k’), so Osceola County is a big part of who I am.
