Excavation

Susan served on MVAC's Board of Directors for over ten years and was also the first chair of MVAC's Education Committee. Her advocacy for and support of archaeology outreach were outstanding. Susan was enthusiastic and creative in her drive to find funding for outreach activities. She brought together committee members and community leaders to develop ways to fund the design and implementation of activities and services that have become hallmarks of MVAC's outreach program. MVAC’s 2004 Archaeology Education Award was awarded to Susan Motschman posthumously.
