Volunteer Spotlight

Sandra Colby, May, 2022 Volunteer Spotlight

Sandra Colby, May, 2022 Volunteer Spotlight

Sandra Colby is our May Spotlight Volunteer. After leaving her job in 2016, she says, she “saw a need and had time,” and submitted two volunteer applications. The other organization did not call her back and we happily welcomed her into the Museum’s volunteer family. She learned the curriculum for all four of our Full-Day Education Programs for elementary students and began presenting regularly. She also loves assembling craft kits during our Busy Bee volunteer days and fills in at the front desk now and then.

Sandie brings a wealth of experience and education to her volunteer work. She has M.S. degrees in Instructional Design and Education Tech and B.S. degrees in Education and Agriculture. She has worked for craft and sewing companies, taught Sunday school and crochet, served in schools as a media specialist and substitute teacher, and worked in a bookstore. For a while she was working three jobs at once and needed to step back from volunteering. Now that she is retired, we are thrilled to have her back!

Sandie loves the flexibility and variety of volunteering at the Museum. She signs up for enough shifts to keep busy and still has plenty of time to pursue her passion for crafting.
