DOCENT HIGHLIGHT: CAROLYN RANKIN

Jun

16

Docent of the MotnhWe love celebrating our Docent Corps and all of their hard work at the Museum. Meet Carolyn Rankin, another member of the Corps who dedicates countless hours at the Museum to further the mission of “Engaging and Inspiring through Arts, Gardens and Education

In the words of Carolyn…

“I joined the Docent program in 1995 and have been an ambassador for the Museum ever since. As a former RN, having enjoyed a part-time career both in the hospital setting and a Physician’s office, I sought a volunteer position doing something entirely different. I had always been interested in art history and travels so the Cummer Museum was a good fit both for learning and giving back. It is hard to put into words the absolute marvelous training we as docents have received through the years both from the great staff present and previous. I feel fortunate  to have met so many interesting people from whom I have learned much. The favorite part of my job is probably being able to share the entire campus with children as I feel the outdoor space too is special as well as the art.
