VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

Our museum volunteers exhibit style and grace every day. So many people selflessly contribute to our mission and inspire us with their dedication, and we're extending special thanks to a few of them below.

Lucinda Frailly

Volunteer

Shortly after retiring from a long career as a high school teacher in May 2001, Mary Regula brought Lucinda on board as the Education Director and Special Events Coordinator for the National First Ladies Library & Museum. Frailly was hooked from the start, feeling honored to educate the public about the First Ladies of our country. Nearly 20 years later, she retired from her dream job but didn't want to step away completely. When the team t National First Ladies invited her to join the scholarship committee, she eagerly accepted. Lucinda believes that continuing education after high school is crucial, and the Mary Regula scholarship helps make it more affordable, encouraging students to pursue further education. Through the application process, students also get the chance to learn about the First Ladies and their contributions to our nation's history. As a volunteer, she continues to support the organization she believes in so passionately!
