TheJourney through Hallowed Ground partnership named Louisa County employee Lisa Bailey as the volunteer of the year. Bailey is a certified tourism ambassador, where she promotes the program and teaches others how to be an ambassador.
She says she wants to share her love for history and tourism. “It’s really a win-win. You get to be involved in things that are involved with history as well as learn a lot more about history and be involved in things that are local with local people. The interest is really growing and building a great deal.”
The Journey through Hallowed Ground is a nonprofit dedicated to teaching others about the heritage area that stretches from Gettysburg to Monticello.
