Culturekeepers Award goes to Reba Wells Grandrud

It is no surprise that Historical League member Reba Wells Grandrud will be honored this year for making a positive impact on the state's history. Arizona Culturekeepers are a varied group and they all support the state's culture, environment, history or economy. Reba is a past National Register of Historic Places co-ordinator and has taken an active role in researching, preserving, teaching and publishing state, local and regional history in Arizona and New Mexico.

She will be in good company with former Governor Rose Mofford, theater owner Dan Harkins, historian Frank Barrios, cowboy artist Bill Owen, the Scottsdale Charros, historian Aaron Cohen, performer and songwriter Sue Harris, Tohono O'odham basket weaver Annie Antone and cultural preservationist Roxanne Knight.

The inductees will be honored at noon on September 19 at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa. $45 per person. Proceeds benefit the Arizona Historical Society and Sharlott Hall Museum in Prescott.
