(BINGHAMTON, NY) Broome County Executive Jason Garnar joined the Friends of the Forum today to announce Nancy Hargrave as the next recipient of a star on the Wall of Fame at the Forum Theatre. Hargrave is a founding member of the Discovery Center of the Southern Tier and created the “Story Garden.”
The Discovery Center, located in Binghamton’s historic Ross Park, is a hands-on interactive children’s museum serving the Southern Tier of New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania. The exhibits, themes and ambiance are community specific, yet leave a wide margin for global discovery. The award-winning Story Garden outdoor exhibit space was opened in 2007.
Hargrave has been a teacher and mentor at the Discovery Center for 30+ years. She was the creator of the story garden where she continues to implement changes and additions as it has blossomed into a popular New York State attraction. Hargrave was also a New York State Teacher of the Year finalist.
You can see all the stars on display in the lobby of the Forum Theatre.
