The National Churchill Museum in Fulton will receive the 2013 Missouri Humanities Award for Exemplary Community Achievement in the Humanities in Missouri.

The award will be presented April 17 in Jefferson City at the Missouri Humanities Council’s awards ceremony.

Rob Havers, National Churchill Museum director, said the museum was fortunate to host a Smithsonian exhibit last year and thanked the Missouri Humanities Council for the award.

“We were overjoyed at the enthusiastic response the Smithsonian exhibit received from the public and amazed at the significant contributions made by so many to make the exhibition possible,” Havers said.
