Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area would like to honor former Board Chair, Grant Glenn, for his service in helping promote and preserve this history of our communities.

Ensuring ongoing substantial efforts by trustees and staff towards achieving reauthorization and educating legislators and others about National Heritage Areas
Upon his retirement, FFNHA welcomes Kevin Wood as his successor.
