History Museum announces Legacy Award recipients

Posted: Updated:

Several Great Falls community leaders were recognized on Wednesday for their efforts in preserving Montana history.

Museum organizers say each year they present "Legacy Awards" to individuals, organizations or businesses that have shaped and preserved Cascade County and north central Montana history.

Paul Snyder received the first "Special Museum Award" this year for his work as a volunteer over the past 10 years on the board of directors and the museum's building committee.

Snyder says he worked at the Stumptown Historical Museum and Society in Whitefish for a decade before volunteering time at the history museum in Great Falls.

"It just seemed like the logical thing, I grew up over in eastern Montana and Montana history has always been important to me and I liked this part of the state and I just seemed to fit where I would be involved here," said Snyder.

Great Falls Public Schools Superintendent Tammy Lacey received the museum's "Person of the Year Legacy Award".

James Talcott Construction received the "Commercial Category Legacy Award".

The Great Falls Area Chamber of Commerce received the "100 Years in Business Legacy Award". 

Awardees will be honored for their contributions at The History Museum's annual Legacy Awards Dinner, which takes place April 28th starting with a social hour at 6:00 with dinner at 7:00 followed by live and silent auctions to benefit the museum. 

Tune in to KRTV on Sunday evening to hear from this year's winners.
