Discovery Center founder added to Broome County Wall of Fame

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A local woman, one of the founding members of the Discovery Center, has officially been added to the Broome County Wall of Fame.

A ceremony was held Friday afternoon at the Forum Theatre Friday afternoon honoring Nancy Hargrave.

Local leaders, friends, and Discovery Center employees and volunteers all came to thank her for decades of selfless dedication to the community.

Hargrave spent more than 30 years working to build up the Discovery Center. Most notably, Hargrave was behind the creation of the Story Garden, an award-winning outdoor exhibit.

"I am so overwhelmed, and truly humbled to be accepting this honor. I accept it in the name of everyone who has helped with the Discovery Center and the story garden, two gems of our community," Hargrave said.

Hargrave joins a prestigious list of Broome County residents on the Wall of Fame. They include Rod Serling, Cartoonist Johnny Hart, and former Discovery Center Executive Director Pokey Crocker.
