HAL BROWN (Retired Journalist)
Hal is a life-long resident of Wood County with 42 years as a reporter, sports editor, city editor, and web editor for the Sentinel-Tribune. If elected to the WCHS Board of Trustees, he would help preserve and promote the history where many of his ancestors and family have lived since the 1830s. Hal believes it is important to make connections with those who are new to the area and encourage their involvement. Lyle Fletcher was a great example of someone who came to Bowling Green/Wood County as an adult and had a huge impact on preserving local history. Hal is also a member of the Wood County Genealogical Society with three “First Family of Wood County” designations (Baird, Croft, and McMillen) and a volunteer for the Wood County Park District.

Dru serves on the Interpretation Subcommittee, volunteers for a variety of outreach events, and leads school tours at the Center. She believes the story and lives of the people of Wood County should be valued and preserved as a tool for learning and appreciation. “Our Wood County history must never be lost. This museum is a treasure to be shared with future generations.”
