Volunteer of the Month: May

Paul BuckholdtWe are pleased to honor Paul Buckholdt as our May Volunteer of the Month.

Paul Buckholdt retired from the U.S. Army in 1969. Since then he has been involved in a variety of interesting projects, including carpentry, electrical work, theatrical photography and computer programming. He is also a Ham, or amateur radio operator, and often spends his time communicating with police for first emergency services during foot and bicycle races. He also uses his radio to connect to other Hams around the globe, including a member of the US Navy stationed in Antarctica.  

An avid rider, you can often find Paul on one of his old BMW motorcycles. He enjoys taking long trips across the country as well as watching motorcycle races.  

Paul is a long-time supporter of Fernbank, having visited routinely since the Museum opened in 1992. In this third year of volunteering, he says the current special exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep is his favorite so far.
