HOT SPRINGS – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement after Mid-America Science Museum in Hot Springs was named a finalist for the 2016 National Medal for Museum and Library Service:
“I congratulate Mid-America Science Museum for being named a finalist for the 2016 National Medal for Museum and Library Service,” Westerman said. “Mid-America has not only made a difference in the lives of Garland County families, but has impacted generations of Arkansans. The museum’s focus on bringing science education to the masses and doing so in a fun way has made it a leader in the state and nation. Mid-America’s recent expansion continues its mission, bringing science to life for generations to come.”
The Institute of Museum and Library Services said National Medal winners will be named later this spring with representatives from winning institutions traveling to Washington, D.C., to be honored in a White House ceremony.
