Jack Bates was born in northern Maine and moved to Georgia about 40 years ago. He formerly taught psychology at the University of South Carolina and at Perimeter College, and since retiring spends most of his spare time volunteering. He has been volunteering at Fernbank Museum since 2009. His favorite thing about being at Fernbank is seeing and chatting with people, especially the young people. Jack also volunteers at AID Atlanta, Jerusalem House, is a Stephen Minister, teaches Sunday school and works with Hospice. He says, “volunteering keeps me going and keeps me busy.”

Thank you for all you do, Jack!  We love seeing your face every Friday.
