Staff members of the Riley County Historical Museum received a plaque honoring their former director, Cheryl Collins.
Commission Chair John Ford presented a plaque to staff members in memory of Collins.  Those in attendance were Curator of Design and Interim Director Allana Parker, Curator of Collections Dawn Munger, and Archivist/Librarian Linda Glasgow.
Ford says this was something he wished he didn’t have to do, and hopes future commissioners do have to as well.
