Ellzey honored by NSDA for preserving local history
The Yazoo Herald
John E. Ellzey received a certificate from the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. It was presented by JoAnne Collins, Yazoo Chapter regent, at Ricks Memorial Library, on April 25.
The certificate read, “the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Certificate of Award presented to John E. Ellzey for you dedication in preserving local history and creating historical displays at Ricks Memorial Library.”
Ellzey has been at the library for 39 years and is the reference and local history librarian. He said that he has worked with the Yazoo Chapter NSDA for most of those 39 years including help with a quilt raffle many years ago and with displays of commemorative events such as Constitution Week, Women’s History Month, tenth anniversary of 9-11, Native American Indian Month and the upcoming 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.
The National DAR theme for 2010-2013 is “Preserve the Past, Enhanced the Present and Invest in the Future.” Ellzey has certainly done that for the Yazoo community.
Yazoo Chapter NSDA members also showed their appreciation with a monetary award.
