Archbold Biological Station, Kissimmee Valley Archaeological and Historical Conservancy (KVAHC) and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) are pleased to present an event to honor the legacy of Anne Driskell (Nichols) Reynolds on Saturday, February 17th. The day was originally conceived by high school student, Clare Whalen from Jupiter, Florida, who was nominated as a Student of the Year Candidate by a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society leadership team, for her desire to make a difference. She read about Anne in Archbold’s monthly enewsletter and was inspired to organize an event with her friends from high school in Anne Reynold’s honor. The event will start with a working celebration of Anne Reynold’s interest in education and archaeology with a student visit to the KVAHC dig for the Suncoast Community High School from Riviera Beach, Florida, with Dr. David Butler. This will be followed by a public Open House at the Frances Archbold Hufty Learning Center at Archbold Biological Station from 1:00 pm-3:30 pm including tours, and viewing of some of Anne’s art, writing, and historical artifacts. There will be a small ceremony and dedication including short presentations about Anne’s contributions to nature, science, history, and arts by Charles Reynolds Jr., Clare Whalen, and Hilary Swain. This event is free and open to the public, light refreshments will be provided.
This event is being organized in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Kissimmee Valley Archaeological and Historical Conservancy (KVAHC).
