<Rob Hughes: “We know that’s it’s a vibrant early childhood space and given all our work in early childhood, we know what a great fit it is and what a great add-on it is for our families to be able to come to the Children’s Museum,” said Rob Hughes, vice president development at Porter-Leath.

Also honored Thursday night were the three women who put in the work to open the Children’s Museum of Memphis in 1990.
