Changes at Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition

February 25, 2010

The Illinois Lincoln Highway Colaotion is saying goodbye to long-time Associate Director Diane Rossiter. “We owe her an immense debt of gratitude for taking us to a new level,” says Project Director Bonnie Heimbach. “When she first started we were just enhancing our website and taking our visitor guide form a map format into a comprehensive guide … and believe me, the Gazebos and Interpretive Murals were just pages in our Master Plan. Look at us today!”

Program Director Sue Hronik will take on increased responsibilities. Already in charge of creating the Interpretive Panels for their gazebos, Sue will be the prime contact for the mural project, the new exhibit, and a re-editing of the documentary for their website. They are also welcoming Mary Jo Coleman as part-time Byway Coordinator and point person for the website, partner communication, and marketing.
