Members of the University of Mount Olive (UMO) Honors Program, along with Program Director Dr. Brenda Cates and Assistant Director Dr. Alan Lamm, recently participated in a “Night at the Museum” event at the Wayne County History Museum in Goldsboro, NC. The museum’s Assistant Director Anna Mitchell is a former UMO Honors student and history major. She gave the students a tour of the museum, which included the current exhibit “Hearts & Hands: A Local History of African American Community Service.” Following the tour, the students enjoyed pizza together in the section of the museum that was formerly a USO ballroom.
