Patton and Founders Award


The Patton and the Founders Awards is a tradition that goes back 30 years to the beginning of the Museum. These awards are given out to those men and women who have either served or made a difference in the Museum, our community and serves as a symbol of honor. The Board of Directors votes each year on who receives these awards and we will continue this honorable tradition in the future.
