Robin was a teacher and administrator for Greenville Public Schools for over thirty years, so it’s natural for her to develop and coordinate the hands-on education programs, providing the link between the museum and area schools. As a Master Gardener, she has assumed the responsibility of overseeing the renovation and maintenance of the museum’s Victorian Garden which extends the museum experience into a public garden setting with outside exhibit pieces. Robin says, “I love serving on the museum board in the community where my family roots run deep. I was born and raised in Greenville, as was my mother (born in 1925) and grandmother (born in 1886). My great-grandfather was born north of Greenville in Cato Township in 1860. I enjoy history and am always eager to learn more about our area and then share that information with others.” Robin’s enthusiasm for children, local history, research, and education make her a great fit for the board.
