Fort Ligonier staffer honored by state museum trade group
Matt Gault, assistant education director at Fort Ligonier, has been honored by the PA Museums statewide trade association as a top emerging museum professional.
At the organization’s annual statewide museum conference April 16 in Boalsburg, the Greensburg native will receive the Carol Wickkiser Memorial Award. The award recognizes “exceptional promise and potential for leadership in an emerging professional with 10 years or less experience in the field.”
The award includes a $500 scholarship to be used for continuing education.
Gault, who often wears period outfits as he helps lead tours of the fort and its museum, recently received the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau Tourism Employee of the Year Award .
