Volunteers in the Gamma Ray

The Fleets Volunteers of the Year!


Peter Volkert has been a Fleet volunteer for 2 years!  He started as a Gallery Facilitator and is currently an Education Department Assistant.  He is indispensable to the Education Department and a pleasure to have at the Fleet!  It is no wonder he is our volunteer of the year!



Elle Bass was at the Fleet for a 6 month internship with the HR Department.  In those short 6 month Elle managed to revamp our entire orientation process!  She definitely earned her title as Intern of the Year and has set the standards high for any interns to follow!  


Christine Cho is our Teen Volunteer of the Year!  She has been an incredible Tinkerer in the Tinkering Studio.  Christine is leaving us soon to start a new adventure- college!!  Congrats Christine, we will miss you!!   


What is a gamma ray?

Gamma rays have the smallest wavelengths and the most energy of any wave in the electromagnetic spectrum. They are produced by the hottest and most energetic objects in the universe, such as neutron stars and pulsars, supernova explosions, and regions around black holes. The volunteers we will highlight on this page have put so much energy and so much of themselves into their service at the Fleet; we figured if we were going to shine a light on them, it had better be a really awesome light.
