Judy’s interest in history goes way back to her high school days, researching for term papers at the Grand Rapids Public Library. Much later, as secretary at Lincoln Heights school for 20 years, she enjoyed coordinating special student events with teacher, Robin Walter. With both now on the museum board, they again collaborate on projects and programming for both children and adults. “I also love using my writing skills to produce the Logmark newsletter of the Flat River Historical Society and to promote museum activities in newspaper articles.” Before moving into Greenville from Oakfield township in 2016, she was active with the Oakfield Museum and continues to represent both Oakfield and Flat River Museums with the Tri-River Historical Museum Network of 33 small museums, serving as its vice president and publicity person.
