A new museum is being dedicated next week in Fort Scott. The Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes features exhibits, a theater, art and more to showcase the lives and actions of individuals who have done extraordinary things in the service of others. On Monday, the museum opens to the public with student-produced plays and presentations. On Tuesday, more than 200 dignitaries and visitors...including Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and museum founder Lowell Milken...will participate in a grand opening ceremony.
Executive director Norm Conard and program director Megan Felt spoke with KPR's Laura Lorson about the mission of the museum, how the featured unsung heroes are chosen, and how the museum got its start. Megan Felt says it all began with a presentation she worked on as part of a student project for National History Day, focusing on the Holocaust.
