Zachary DeWeese

Zachary says he loves working with the restoration crew and estatic about the opportunity to learn. Several weeks ago, Zach asked if it would be ok to have his Senior Pictures taken at the museum. He loves the place and the people involved. Thanks, Zach! We appreciate your service and wish you the best during your senior year!
