At the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society’s annual President’s Reception and Volunteer Recognition and Awards, several alumni and current students from the Department of History were recognized for their volunteer contributions.
For contributing 100 or more hours to the Society since the volunteer program was redesigned in 2021, certificates were presented to current Master of Arts student and alumna Bronwyn Chesterfield (HBA/BEd 2022) and Honours Bachelor of Arts major Dylan Dicarlo. Also recognized was alumna Jenna Kirker (HBA/BEd 2015 and MA 2017).
Since the volunteer program’s reconstitution in 2021, volunteers have contributed over 6,076 hours to the Society’s mission. "Our volunteers bring unique skills, experience, personal and professional networks, and other qualitative impacts that are not easily measured," said Scott Bradley, Executive Director of the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society.
"Their contributions enable the staff and other volunteers to achieve greater levels of excellence," said Dr. Michel S. Beaulieu, President and Chair of the Society's Board of Directors. "Our volunteers contribute to the achievements of the organization across nearly every aspect of our operations and programmes. None of what we do would succeed without our volunteers."
