Destination Gettysburg has honored Shriver House's Director Nancie Gudmestad with the Jim Getty "Spirit of Gettysburg" Award, given annually to an individual in the Adams County tourism community who exemplifies leadership, contribution and dedication to the industry.
Gudmestad was given the award at Destination Gettysburg's Annual Dinner on March 27.
"Nancie Gudmestad will always be known for her work with her husband in restoring the Shriver House Museum," said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. "But Nancie's contribution to the tourism industry goes back decades and includes a variety of work to better the community."
