Superhero: an individual possessing extraordinary talents, selfless determination, and dedication for helping others; by this definition Georgia Aquarium has many superheroes, we call them Volunteers! Our Volunteer Team fills a myriad of roles at Georgia Aquarium – from greeter, hospitality host and tour guide to diver, commissary specialist, or lab technician, our Volunteers do it all. They choose to share their time, passion and talents with us, and without them, our organization would not be able to offer a world class experience.
This coming week signifies National Volunteer Appreciation week and is Georgia Aquarium’s 9th opportunity to recognize our superheroes and show how much we really appreciate them. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” Our Volunteers give their own free will seeking no reward or compensation; the kind of deed we all admire! By sharing their talents at the Aquarium they make a difference every day in the lives of our animals and the experiences of our guests. If you have ever visited Georgia Aquarium, you saw the work of this dedicated force of Superheroes!
THANK YOU, SUPERHEROES!
