We started 2014 off with one of our longest serving volunteers in a very public facing role (Visitor Education Volunteer, Noel Jette!) and now we’re ending 2014 by awarding a volunteer just coming up on her 6-month commitment who has already become a go-to resource in a very critical behind-the-scenes role, the Aquarium Medical Center.
Bryce began volunteering with the medical center on Wednesdays in August. Since her arrival, she has been a huge help. She has managed to survive moray eel procedures, iPad disasters and all the other crazy happenings that tend to occur on Wednesdays. She always remains calm and collected during these activities while still bringing a comfort, and later, laughter (when appropriate) to the situation.
Bryce is one of those volunteers that will anticipate our needs. There have been countless times I have gone to ask her to help with something and she has already done it, or in the midst of doing the task before I even have the chance to ask. It is always a relief to know she has our back and we can count on her. She is a very dedicated volunteer, even coming in after an overnight shift with the Coast Guard to help with barb clips that were rescheduled to a day that was not her typical schedule. Bryce is a wonderful person, both professional and fun to work with. We are very pleased to be working with her and she deserves the recognition for all of her hard work.Please join our team in congratulating Bryce!
