Carolyn S. Gregg

Award of Distinction

Carolyn Gregg has taken an active leadership role in preserving the Blue Springs Lutheran Church and Cemetery, founded in 1811. As historian of the Blue Springs Historical Association, Carolyn compiled the book The History of Blue Springs Church and Cemetery, 1811-2016, including biographies and photos of its ministers. Blue Springs Church, Community, and Colleges expanded this history to the early education provided by ministers of the church. She also wrote the scripts for the “Whispers from the Grave” activity that detailed the lives of those who began the church.
