Assisting in the creation of the Manitowoc County A-Z exhibit is no doubt one of the highlights of my time at the Manitowoc County Historical Society (MCHS). Manitowoc County A-Z is a traveling middle school exhibit. The exhibit was created in 2016.
My role in the exhibits creation was coming up for ideas for each letter which pertained to Manitowoc County. For example I chose circus for “C”. Manitowoc County had a circus school during the early 1900’s which was world renowned. I then found photos to be used in the exhibit for each letter. My last task was creating a description for each of the words from A-Z.
I was notified by the historical society in 2017 that I was nominated and chosen to receive the Dillon Muller Youth Service Award for my work on this exhibit. I received the award at the Manitowoc County Historical Society’s annual banquet in March 2018.
