Faculty note: Sherman elected to National Railroad Museum Board
UW-Green Bay History program Chair, Heidi Sherman, was appointed to the boards of two community organizations in March. She was elected to the National Railroad Museum’s Board of Directors. Founded in 1956, the museum offers a unique learning experience through the preservation of artifacts and creation of fun interactive events for all ages. She was also invited to serve on the advisory board for Hands on Deck, a non-profit organization that seeks to introduce kids to traditional woodcraft and hand tools through the construction of boats. Both organizations engage the community in hands-on learning, similar in aim to the mission of the Viking House, which Sherman and friends brought to UW-Green Bay in fall of 2017.
