A familiar face is taking the reigns at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown.

Lin Erickson was named the new executive director and CEO of the organization on Monday.

Erickson was the CEO of the science center before it made the move to Allentown in 2005.

Since then, she's spearheaded projects with the Air Force Museum Foundation and Wittenberg University in Ohio.

Erickson will replace former CEO Troy Thrash, who left Da Vinci to take a position in Michigan.
