Leigh named CBEC vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor

Record Observer - - News -

GRA­SONVILLE — Court­ney Leigh, an out­door ed­u­ca­tor and em­ployee of Ch­e­sa­peake Bay En­vi­ron­men­tal Cen­ter, has re­cently filled the post of vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor. She has worked in the field of out­door ed­u­ca­tion for about 20 years, and prior to work­ing at CBEC she taught at Gib­son Is­land Coun­try School in Pasadena as the En­vi­ron­men­tal Sci­ence Co­or­di­na­tor.

With 170 vol­un­teers on the roll at CBEC it is a task in sched­ul­ing, re­port­ing and rec­og­niz­ing the ef­forts of the vol­un­teers. Ac­cord­ing to Court­ney Leigh, one of her goals in work­ing with the vol­un­teers is “to en­gage peo­ple in serv­ing the en­vi­ron­ment on be­half of CBEC.”

She also said she “looks for­ward to cre­at­ing an at­mos­phere that’s en­joy­able and serves as a ve­hi­cle for one’s stew­ard­ship val­ues.”

Some of Leigh’s strengths as vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor are to serve as a fa­cil­i­ta­tor and bridge the gap in con­nect­ing the vol­un­teer with the ap­pro­pri­ate task. Her per­sonal skills, knowl­edge of the en­vi­ron­ment and di­verse re­source base will work well in pro­vid­ing the CBEC vol­un­teers with a worth­while ex­pe­ri­ence.

Leigh has a vested in­ter­est in this po­si­tion be­cause she is a long-time lo­cal re­sid­ing in the Queen­stown with her hus­band, Tom, and two daugh­ters, Sadie and Tea­gan.

If any­one is look­ing for vol­un­teer time in the en­vi­ron­men­tal field, con­tact Leigh at cleigh@bayrestora­tion.org.
