Dr. James C. Mershon Memorial

Continue Dr. Mershon's passion for educating children

Dr. Mershon was a supporter of Exploration Place from its inception. As a founding donor, he understood our science center’s vision to provide our community – especially the young – with STEM education opportunities. Dr. Mershon’s commitment continued, volunteering for years in his beloved Kansas in Miniature exhibit.

With Making a Landmark, his insatiable love for history helped spark this exhibit. He was an instrumental resource in its development as well as being its prime donor.

Dr. and Mrs. Mershon recently made a generous contribution to the upcoming refresh of the Where Kids Rule exhibit. He again thought about those young minds and the fond memories of his grandchildren’s excitement when they explored and learned in the exhibit’s castle.

Now, we are grateful that a memorial was established in Dr. Mershon’s honor for Exploration Place.
