National Docent Symposium praise


This picture came to me today along with an email about the National Docent Symposium closing night I participated in.

To refresh your memory, I am a volunteer docent at an SF Bay Area natural history museum. This was taken at about 8pm at night after about 12 hours already at the museum – and yet I don’t think I’ve had a greater time. Then top it off with these amazing words in the email:

“One of the benefits from working together on the Symposium is that I had a chance to get to know you. I had heard that you were terrific, and now I have joined your corps of admirers. Well done, Trevor! Thank you, you made us look good!”

What they don’t seem to realize is that they – the other docents that night – are the people I look up to. They are my heros and mentors. Being included in their ranks is more than enough praise for me.
