Highline Heritage Museum’s Executive Director Nancy Salguero McKay this week was honored the 2020 ‘Willard Jue Staff Award’ from the Association of King County Historical Organizations (AKCHO).

Presented to individuals in two possible categories – paid staff and volunteers – Willard Jue Memorial Award winners “are individuals who have made outstanding contributions, provided exceptional leadership, and demonstrated excellence in duration, quality, or spirit of service.”

The AKCHO Board of Directors and Awards Committee are hoping to present this award to McKay at its 2020 Awards event sometime this summer, or whenever the COVID-19 pandemic passes.

“Congratulations, Ms. (Nancy) Salguero McKay,” officials said. “Acknowledgment by your peers is the highest form of praise and appreciation.”

Congrats Nancy from all of us at South King Media!
