After receiving many fantastic nominations, we have chosen a recipient. Congratulations to our inaugural winner of the Mary Humstone Excellence in Historic Preservation Award:

Jackie Dorothy of Thermopolis, Wyoming! 

Dorothy was nominated for her creation of the 1920’s Middleton School Immersion program for the Hot Springs County Museum. After the Middleton School was restored to its appearance from the 1920s, 3rd and 4th graders are able to experience an authentic 1920s one-room school house’s daily curriculum.

The award presentation will be held at 5:30 pm on Friday, May 24th at the Hot Springs County Museum in Thermopolis, in conjunction with the Museum’s annual award ceremony for the J.C. History Competition.
