Allegany Museum would like to congratulate, Dr Matthew Ravenscroft, teacher at Mountain Ridge School, who was selected as the 2017-2018 Allegany County Teacher of the Year.
We would also like to express our gratitude for his assistance with our recent The Way We Worked exhibition. Matthew was the advisor to the students who put together the interviews with local people about their memories of working life in Allegany County. The interviews were a popular part of the exhibition, and a valuable way to preserve our history.
The Maryland State Teachers of the Year recently visited the Museum as part of their tour of the historical locations in the area. The tour was led by the Executive Director of Partnerships for the State Department of Education, Darla F. Strouse, Ed. D.
They were greeted by Vic Rezendes, Museum Vice President and Clara Procello of the Museum Education Committee. Lee Fiedler, retired President of Kelly-Springfield Tires, talked with them about the Kelly-Springfield collection.
