May 25, 2023
Two adjunct faculty, Dr. Hope Benedict and Ronald James, will receive the 2023 Esto Perpetua Award from the Idaho State Historical Society at an awards banquet June 5.
The Esto Perpetua Award takes its name from the state’s motto, “let it be perpetual” and for the past 24 years, the Idaho State Historical Society has recognized people and organizations who have preserved and promoted Idaho’s history through professional accomplishments, public service or volunteerism, and philanthropy.
Since the award was created in 1999, ISHS has recognized the inspiring local preservation efforts of more than 200 individuals and organizations throughout the state of Idaho. The work of an Esto Perpetua awardee reflects dedication, commitment, and passion for Idaho and its history.
