OGDENSBURG -- The Frederic Remington Art Museum was among three organizations recently selected by the St. Lawrence County Information Technology Committee for a SPIRIT Award in recognition of its "successful application of innovative technology to enhance the organization's mission."
The museum was cited in the SPIRIT Award for its work in developing distance learning programming for middle and high school students. The award was presented to Remington Executive Director, Ed LaVarnway, in a ceremony at Clarkson's Cheel Campus Center.
The St. Lawrence County Department of Information Technology is responsible for all aspects of the county's information management.
SPIRIT, or Spotlighting Progressive Implementation of Revered Technology, was created as a memorial to Helene Mellon, a highly valued IT Committee member and a friend of the Remington Museum who passed away in March.
The Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington St., is dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, preserving and interpreting the art and archives of Frederic Remington, and contains an unmatched collection of his works.
