Jeana Ganskop '08, of Williamson, NY, recently received the Mildred Frick Taylor Award from the Board of Wayne County Supervisors and Carmen Pascarella, Town of Rose supervisor and chair of the Wayne County History and Education Committee. Ganskop received the award for her written contribution to the Wayne County Historical Arhives while serving as an intern volunteer during the summer of 2005.

Ganskop is a history major at St. Lawrence, and during her internship, indexed the book Ever True, by Lisa Saunders, which chronicles the life of a Civil War soldier from Wayne County, and his relationship with his wife, through their correspondence. Ganskop also updated and reorganized the county record for the Elmwood Cemetery and chronicled her own experiences and activities in the county historian's office.

Wayne County Historian Peter Evans made the presentation to Ganskop at a meeting of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors. The Mildred Frick Taylor Award was established by a bequest from Taylor's estate, to recognize individuals who make "significant contributions to the County Historical Archive." The award has not been presented since 2002.
