Hood Quarterly, autumn 2006

This fall, the Hood Museum of Art is pleased to honor Marguerite Collier as its Volunteer of the Year. This award is presented by the Hood every October in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month as a way of paying tribute to its dedicated volunteers. Marguerite has been an enthusiastic volunteer at the Hood Museum Shop since moving to the Upper Valley in 1994 with her husband, Bob. In addition to her zeal for assisting shop customers, Marguerite is also devoted to recruiting and coordinating the other shop volunteers.

Prior to moving to the Upper Valley, Marguerite was a fourth grade teacher in Wellesley, Massachusetts, so it is no surprise that she is especially interested in making the arts accessible and meaningful to the Hood's younger visitors. To this end she has served on the Board of the Friends of Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art. We thank Marguerite for her twelve years of dedicated service to the museum and the many ways her presence and enthusiasm reach beyond the ordinary!
