Congratulations to our July 2017 Volunteer of the Month: Corina Mier y Teran!
The New England Aquarium becomes a cultural hub of the Greater Boston Area during the summer season. We receive over 1.3 million visitors a year and visitors come from all over the world to visit our facility. This often means large crowds of people all clamouring for our attention and to take part in our activities, views of the exhibits etc. It is often both physically and mentally draining to keep a positive and energetic air about oneself when dealing with so many visitors and our Visitor Education staff and volunteers are right on the front lines. One such volunteer who excels as staying cheerful and upbeat is Corina Mier y Teran.
Here’s what her supervisor Meghan-Elizabeth Foster had to say about her service:
“Corina is exceptional at putting everyone around her in a great mood. Corina comes in each week with a positive attitude and it always up for trying something new. It doesn’t matter where or what I ask her to do during the day or if it is something she likes to do or not, Corina takes everything in stride and always makes the best of it. It can be hard for some on busy summer days to maintain an upbeat attitude and provide great customer service throughout a whole shift, but Corina’s smile never fades even on the busiest of days. Corina’s positivity is such an asset to Visitor Educations Monday morning team.”
Congratulations once again to Corina Mier y Teran on her service and commitment to our mission of “protecting the blue planet.”
