On Tuesday, the National Corvette Museum unveiled a new addition called the Wendell Strode Club Room in honor of the retired Executive Officer​

by Mariah Hughes

On Tuesday of the Michelin NCM BASH week, the club room was unveiled with it’s new name the Wendell Strode Club Room. The Museum is honoring the contribution that Wendell Strode made to the National Corvette Museum for nearly three decades.

Glenn Johnson, NCM Board Chair said, “Wendell not only cared about the Museum but the Corvette community that surrounds it and for these reasons and more he is also being inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame.” Strode is the retired Executive Director of the National Corvette Museum, and the first inductee into the new category of Corvette Community Contributor in the Corvette Hall of Fame.

The Wendell Strode Club Room is a small, intimate space used for events, meeting, and a gathering place for all. Strode said “none of the Museum’s success would be possible without the Museum members, Museum Leadership, and Museum staff.” Thank you Wendell for your dedication to the National Corvette Museum.
