Hanford Mills Museum, at 51 County Highway 12, presents historic mill operations.
“Liz’s achievements at Hanford Mills Museum stand out, to me, as an educator, as an outstanding example of how a small museum can really thrive, not just survive today,” Marsha S. Stock, president of the Hanford Mills Museum Board of Trustees, said in the release.
Callahan has served as executive director of Hanford Mills Museum since 2001. Before that, she was director of the Delaware County Historical Association.
SHARON SPRINGS FIRM WINS STATE GRANT
A Sharon Springs manufacturer has won a grant to help buy equipment to boost competitiveness and jobs, a media release said.
AMT Inc. was awarded $100,000 in a funding round to projects in the Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council, which represents Schoharie and Otsego counties, a media release said. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced approval April 1 of $6.2 million to support seven economic development projects that will retain almost 1,600 jobs in five regions.
The funding, approved by Empire State Development’s Board of Directors, will leverage more than $51 million in private and additional public investments, the release said.
AMT Inc., a manufacturer of metal precision investment castings, will use the grant of up to $100,000 toward buying machinery and equipment. The firm, which operates a facility of more than 21,500 square-feet in Schoharie County, serves a small market of about 100 international customers in aerospace, aviation, medical and other industries, the release said.
AMT’s project, which retained 29 and created 10 jobs, couldn’t have happened locally without ESD’s support, the release said.
