Ambridge High School alumna Rhonda Wozniak will be at Laughlin Memorial Library at 6 p.m. April 15 sharing her experiences and findings in the depths of the North Atlantic Ocean where the Titanic sunk on April 15, 1912.
All who know of the Titanic’s fateful journey are invited to attend the presentation.
“A program of this nature cannot be conducted without giving tribute to those who lost their lives in this terrible tragedy. Ms. Wozniak’s presentation will be both educational and enlightening,” said Library Director Julie Mulcahy.
According to Wozniak, “Being the conservator on the 1994 RMS Titanic expedition was
a once in a lifetime opportunity. Preserving the artifacts was challenging since they were the first to be raised from such great depths of the ocean, and some of the materials were the first to ever be recovered from any shipwreck—even paper survived.”
“Alongside this, learning the human stories of the disaster was an emotional experience that I will never forget. It was an honor and a privilege to have played even this small part in preserving Titanic’s history. Needless to say, it added an incredible chapter to my own life. I am looking forward to sharing this story of the expedition and the conservation of the artifacts with the community in my hometown."
