History Hero Award presented to Carol Board
History enthusiasts gathered on Thursday, Feb. 22, in the Norman L. Fagan West Virginia State Theater of the Cultural Center for the awards ceremony that kicked off a successful day of celebrating West Virginia history. First Lady Gayle Manchin was assisted by Dr. Robert S. Conte, chairman, and Dr. Kenneth R. Bailey, vice chairman of the West Virginia Archives and History Commission, in presenting History Hero awards to 52 individuals from around the state for their grassroots-level contributions to the preservation, promotion and perpetuation of the state’s rich history. City, county and state historical, preservation and genealogical groups and museums provided nominations for the awards. A complete list of this year’s recipients, along with a brief explanation of their contributions, is enclosed.
Carol Board, member of the Roane County Historical Society since 1993, has served as treasurer and co-chairman of the Roane County Genealogical Fair, and chaired Roane County's Sesquicentennial Committee in 2006. During the Black Walnut Festival, this committee sponsored an essay contest for county school children, sold commemorative baskets, sponsored a float, and held a county birthday party. It also installed in the courthouse plaques of all officials elected since the county was formed. To preserve a fifty-year-old newspaper, Board cut and pasted articles into a book sold by the Roane County Historical Society.
Nominated by Roane County Historical Society, Inc.
We Thank You for all of your hard work and we congratulate you for receiving this much deserved and prestigious award.
