Historymakers Exhibit Opening in Scottsdale Progress

From the Scottsdale Progress Oct 27, 2019
“This is what I do best,” former Arizona Secretary of State Betsey Bayless quipped with a pair of shears in her hands. 
After a short countdown, Bayless, surrounded by a few of her 2019 Arizona Historymakers cohort, cut the blue ribbon for the Arizona Historical League’s 2019 Arizona Historymakers Exhibit at the Arizona Heritage Center in Papago Park.
The now-open exhibit follows the 2019 Arizona Historymakers “Turquoise and Tuxedos” Gala that took place Feb. 23, at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, where six distinguished Arizonans were recognized for their lasting contribution to the community in diverse areas, including the arts, education, healthcare, communications, community service, and philanthropy.
