Friend of Preservation award

BOISE, Idaho — The Oneida Stake Academy Foundation and the Mormon Historic Sites Foundation were awarded a Friend of Preservation award on May 22, as part of Preservation Idaho's 27th annual presentation of their Orchid and Onion Awards. The award was given "in recognition of superlative achievement in preserving Idaho's heritage."

The foundations worked together to save the 114-year-old Oneida Stake Academy from destruction and move it to Benson Park in Preston, Idaho, last year. The foundations were nominated by Jerry Myers, an architect in Pocatello, Idaho, and Idaho adviser for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
