In a the letter sent to all Collins Center trustees and staff today, board chairman Parker Thomson said the article in the Herald/Times today was accurate, that Stierheim will serve as interim president and CEO for three to six months while they conduct a search for a replacement, and that the board has "asked a team of auditors to review the Center's finances."
