2007 Volunteer of the Year

Every year in October, in observation of National Arts and Humanities Month, the Hood Museum of Art pays tribute to its dedicated volunteer corps by naming a Volunteer of the Year. This past fall, we recognized the contributions of Marjorie Cook, docent at the Hood. Margie was in the first class of docents who began the program in 1985 and in the twenty-two years since has represented the museum with warmth, cheerfulness, and enthusiasm. When speaking of Margie, her fellow docents consistently comment on her depth of knowledge, love of learning, and generous and creative spirit. She is always willing to take on a new task and step in as needed, and she welcomes the opportunity to participate in a range of programs that engage both children and adult audiences. In 2005 Margie was one of two docents who represented the Hood by presenting at the National Docent Symposium in Boston. In addition, Margie has also been a longstanding member of the museum. It is impossible to estimate how many Upper Valley community members she has welcomed to the Hood during her time as a docent, but it is certainly in the thousands. We appreciate this opportunity to thank Margie for her contributions to the docent program and the museum.
