Goodenberger to be honored for historic preservation work

John Goodenberger is being honored for his impact on historic preservation.

Local historic buildings consultant John Goodenberger will receive an Oregon Heritage Excellence Award for his consultation, his work with nonprofits and his part in creating the historic preservation and restoration program at Clatsop Community College.

“The award recipients represent the extraordinary efforts to preserve Oregon’s heritage,” said Beth Dehn, coordinator for the state Heritage Commission, in a release. “They also serve as models for others on how to develop new ideas, approaches and innovations.”

Valerie Vines Magee will receive the Sally Donovan Award for Historic Cemetery Preservation for helping improve safety at and beautify the Nehalem American Legion Cemetery.

The awards will be given later this month in Sunriver.
