Here at The Columbus Museum, we do our best to make sure that all of our volunteers get the recognition they deserve. We could not do the things we do without your helping hands!
Lindy Burts has volunteered at The Columbus Museum since the inception of the Teen Advisory Group (TAG Team) in May 2014. Lindy is a rising senior at Brookstone School and also works throughout the year in various capacities. Along with volunteering at the Museum she also volunteers with Easter Seals, PAWS, and teaches summer camp at Brookstone. Her duties as part of the TAG team are to coordinate and implement teen programs and events with the Museum. Her passion is “to inspire others to come to the museum and enjoy growing this gem in our community.” When asked what inspired her to volunteer at the museum, Lindy stated “My childhood experiences when visiting the Museum, coupled with my love for The Columbus Museum makes volunteerism so much fun!” Her favorite piece in the permanent collection is Tomato Table by Craig Nutt. “Being a part of the TAG Team continues to be very inspirational to me. I look forward to imparting information about the Museum to others and hope they will love it just as much as I do,” said Burts.
