LUMBERTON At its annual meeting held recently, the North Carolina Museums Council elected Richard Sceiford of Lumberton as its president.
Sceiford, who is the executive director of the Carolina Civic Center Foundation, has previously served as the councils vice president, treasurer and government affairs chair.
Also at the conference, Helen Seawell Sharpe of Lumberton was presented with the Volunteer Service Award. The award recognizes her 21-year involvement with the Robeson County History Museum since its founding. She has helped curate exhibits, served on the board of directors and encouraged continuing interest in the museum.
In May, the council held its quarterly meeting and selected Robeson County History Museum as one of the yearly participants in its Free On-site Consultation Service program. The North Carolina Museums Council offers this program to only two museums. The program provides the museum with two consultants who will visit and advise the museum on how best to prioritize its needs.
