Three organizations that founded the Spring Street Museum in Shreveport have been named 2020 Pilots of the Year by the LSUS Foundation. The National Society of Colonial Dames of America Shreveport and Red River Parishes; the Helen Mann Memorial Fund Committee; and the Friends of the Spring Street Museum were honored during the foundation’s RiverBend Revue gala Jan. 23 at East Ridge Country Club. In October, those three groups donated the museum to the LSUS Foundation, which is now operating the museum on behalf of LSU-Shreveport. During the gala, LSU-Shreveport unveiled its Cultural Trail, a collection of resources and repositories for the region’s history and culture. The Cultural Trail consists of the Spring Street Museum, the Pioneer Heritage Center, the James S. Noel Collection, Red River Radio and the LSUS Northwest Louisiana Archives. The event had a jazzy theme, with some dressing in 1920s clothing. – Mary Ann Van Osdell
