Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park is serious about its mission as "a center for the collection, presentation, study and enjoyment of our natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage" - and serious about its exhibits that capture Northern Kentucky's story.

But the museum has always had a good sense of fun, too. And perhaps nothing symbolizes that good humor more than the museum's taxidermic prize, the two-headed calf. So, in the spirit of both serious devotion to the mission of the museum and BCM's reputation as a fun place to visit, we present our tenth annual "Two-Headed Calf Community Service Awards."

Typically awards celebrate one exceptional achievement. The fastest runner wins the race. The most talented violinist is awarded the gold medallion. Behringer-Crawford Museum's Two-Headed Calf Awards recognize that very often, true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so, too, is the service of the people these awards honor.

Behringer-Crawford Museum's 2020 Two-Headed Calf Award Recipients for outstanding service are:


Service to the Community: Generosity and Vision Award

     Mary Lou and the late Carroll J. "Mac" Heidrich have dedicated decades to volunteer leadership at Redwood Rehabilitation Center where both are Redwood Trustee Emeritus. The Heidrichs started volunteering in 1960, when their son, Gary, was only two years old, and Mac served as one of the first presidents of Redwood's Parent Group. The Gary Heidrich Fund at Redwood was created in honor of their son, and serves as a testimony to their commitment to helping children and adults with severe and multiple disabilities achieve independence and reach their highest potential.
