Christy Pritchard Accepts the Ida Lee Willis Award

Brockington is proud to announce that Christy Pritchard accepted the Ida Lee Willis Award on May 27th, 2015, on behalf of the Living Archaeology Weekend Steering Committee. The award was presented by the Kentucky State Historic Preservation Office and the Ida Lee Willis Memorial Foundation. Honoring a seminal figure in Kentucky preservation, the Ida Lee Willis Award is given annually in appreciation of individuals, organizations, and local governments that make significant contributions to the preservation of Kentucky’s heritage.

Living Archaeology Weekend has been promoting cultural resources preservation for over 25 years. LAW is a nonprofit educational program focused on the past technologies of Kentucky’s native and pioneer peoples, and the preservation of the archaeological remains of those lifeways. A free, annual, two-day public outreach event with an associated web site, LAW is one of few public archaeology education programs of its magnitude in Kentucky. Through innovative demonstrations, hands-on activities, and dozens of educational resources, LAW has fostered respect for cultural resources and promoted public stewardship of the archaeological record to 35,000 fifth-grade students and other visitors.
