A fund is being established through the New Albany Community Foundation in honor of New Albany Mayor Nancy Ferguson, who is finishing her last term as mayor. The New Albany Co. will provide $10,000 in seed money to establish the fund, which will support one of Ferguson's favorite causes: historic preservation. The fund was announced Wednesday, Dec. 2, during the New Albany Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting and Delta Awards luncheon. Ferguson received the Delta award for outstanding citizen. In addition to serving on New Albany City Council for six years and as mayor for the last 12 years, Ferguson has been an active member of the Plain Township Historical Society for more than 15 years.
