Westlake Historical Society president honored with achievement award

Congratulations to our Westlake Historical Society President, Lysa Stanton, on receiving the Individual Achievement Award given by the Ohio Local History Alliance.

Each year, the Ohio History Alliance presents awards honoring outstanding work in local history in our state. Individual Achievement Awards recognize those who have made outstanding contributions to Ohio’s historical societies, history museums, or the understanding and appreciation of state and local history.

Lysa’s nomination was accompanied by a three-ring binder with letters of recommendation for the award, as well as support material such as news clippings, activity information, lesson plans, publicity and photos.

As stated by Mayor Dennis Clough in his Letter of Recommendation, "I am pleased to write this brief letter as a strong recommendation for Lysa Stanton and her nomination for this OLHA Individual Award to recognize her many volunteer hours along with her vision and motivation in promoting Westlake’s History to its citizens and visitors.”

Thank you to those who led Lysa’s nomination and provided a very clear picture of her many contributions to local history in our area. She is dedicated to preserving our local history, as well as overseeing the Clague House and Lilly Weston House museums.
