MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Dr. Amy J. Wright, executive director of Georgia's Old Capital Museum, was recognized for Local History Advocacy Oct. 16 in Morrow. 

The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB) awards banquet took place at the Georgia Archives. State Rep. Rusty Kidd nominated Wright for the Outstanding Archives award. 

‘We’re honored to be recognized in a large way. I didn't know about it until they called and said we won an award. It was a very impressive ceremony,’ Wright said. 

Ten different award categories covered local government archives, educational use records and excellence in student research. 

Wright said the recognition helps bring increased awareness to the historical significance of Milledgeville.
