At a special meeting on May 24, 2022, the Riverton School Board Meeting presented the 2022 Betty B. Hahle History Achievement Award to eighth-grade student Ian Polaneczky.
The Historical Society of Riverton has sponsored the award each year since 2007 in memory of Riverton’s First Town Historian, former HSR President, editor of its newsletter, and relentless champion of historic preservationist battles, Mrs. Betty B. Hahle.
Ian received a $150 check and a certificate.
His name will be added to a plaque on display in a showcase near the school entrance.
Well done, Ian!
