13th Annual Rebecca Lukens Award Presented To Sandra Momyer

Archivist and local preservationist, Sandra S. Momyer has devoted most of her life to preserving the history of the people, places and heritage of Chester County.

Sandra has dedicated 15 years of her career as the Executive Director of Historic Yellow Springs (HYS). Her leadership, self-motivation and commitment to her work resulted in preservation, conservation and adaptive uses for the historic village. She states, “I believe in preserving our past whether it be structures, oral histories, books, art work and so much more.  It brings a quality of life to our communities, our families and our culture in general.”

During retirement, Sandra’s dedication brought her back to Historic Yellow Springs where she currently manages and cares for the village’s archives. In addition, Sandra is a volunteer member of the Schuylkill Township Historical Commission in which she has worked to preserve the historic character of the township.
