Volunteer of the Year
The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes an individual for extraordinary dedication to volunteer service in the field of historic preservation in North Dakota.
Marilu Person - Hillsboro, ND
Marilu Person became an advocate for historic preservation when Union Block – a commercial building in downtown Hillsboro – was threatened. She and her husband, Bruce, purchased the building for back taxes and donated it to the newly formed Hillsboro Community Partnership for restoration.
Marilu continues to serve on the Local Affiliate Committee, the Traill County Historical Society Board of Directors, and, of course, the Hillsboro Community Partnership board of directors. We are pleased to present this award in honor of her dedication to preservation in North Dakota.
