Sybil Williamson has been recognized for her outstanding service on the board of the National Docent Symposium (NDS) Council. The NDS promotes education and training for volunteer and paid gallery teachers, including a national conference held every two years that is attended by hundreds of docents from all types of museums. Hood docents gave presentations at NDS symposia in 1999 and 2005.
This summer, Ms. Williamson will end her four-year term as a New England Regional Representative. Due to her exemplary leadership, however, she has been asked to stay on for two more years as Secretary of NDS.
