On Feb. 22, at the Culture Center in Charleston, Peggy Boso Ryan received a state-wide award for being a “History Hero.”
Nominated by the Greenbrier Historical Society (GHS), she was recognized for her work as co-chair of the Volunteer Committee of GHS where she is a wonderful volunteer herself. During her tenure, she has developed innovative recruitment methods including holding a reception for prospective volunteers.
Ryan has also helped increase outreach activities with local schools by arranging visits, locating and providing historically oriented educational materials, and helping with the activities when the students arrive.
Delegate George “Boogie” Ambler helped present Ryan’s award and commented about the tremendous value of volunteers such as Ryan.
Margaret Hambrick, President of the Board of GHS, said, “There is a vivaciousness to Peggy that carries her special spirit to everyone around her. We are so proud to have her recognized as a History Hero.”
