Stanley W. Hess, curator of the Aurora Valentinetti Puppet Museum and Evergreen Children's Theatre in Bremerton, was recently recognized by Cambridge Who's Who as the 2011-2012 "Professional of the Year in Educational Theater Arts." Cambridge Who's Who is an online directory that lists more than 400,000 people in different industries throughout the world. The 12-year-old museum has a growing collection of more than 1,100 items from around the world. Last year the museum received puppets donated from Bremerton's sister city, Kure, Japan.
