Volunteer of the Month: June

JUNE VOTM photo.jpgWe are pleased to honor Kate Marie Wiles as our June Volunteer of the Month. 

Kate Marie loves talking about science and meeting new people, which makes her an excellent fit for Fernbank. She began volunteering in August of 2013 and can usually be found interacting with young guests at one of our Discovery Carts or teaching visitors about fossils at the A Walk Through Time in Georgiakiosk—a task she also trains new volunteers to handle.

When not donating her time and talent to Fernbank, Kate Marie enjoys horseback riding (both jumping and dressage), hiking, and soccer. Volunteering allows Kate to feel more connected to the scientific community, which she really enjoys. But one of her favorite moments was being mistaken for a local evening newscaster.

“He was totally starstruck,” she said.
