The Star Democrat - - REAL ESTATE -

ST. MICHAELS — Deb­o­rah Ruz­icka has joined the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Mar­itime Mu­seum as its new ad­vance­ment ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant.

Ruz­icka grew up in New­comb and has spent the past 30 years as a res­i­dent of St. Michaels. She at­tended Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege and has train­ing from the Mary­land Ju­di­ciary Train­ing Cen­ter, and comes to CBMM fol­low­ing a 12year ca­reer with the Tal­bot County Clerk of the Cir­cuit Court’s Of­fice.

At CBMM, Ruz­icka will pro­vide ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port for the ad­vance­ment depart­ment by fa­cil­i­tat­ing the mem­ber­ship process, co­or­di­nat­ing monthly mem­ber nights, and man­ag­ing data en­try, in ad­di­tion to other re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

“We’re thrilled to have Deb­bie join our team,” Liz LaCorte, CBMM’s vice pres­i­dent of ad­vance­ment said. “Her skills will be a tremen­dous as­set as we head into the hol­i­day sea­son and con­tinue our ef­forts to achieve our year-end an­nual fund goals. With a cost of $10,000 per day to op­er­ate CBMM, we rely on taxd­e­ductible con­tri­bu­tions to achieve CBMM’s mis­sion. The an­nual fund sup­ports ev­ery­thing from hands-on ed­u­ca­tion and boat­build­ing pro­grams and sea­sonal fes­ti­vals that cel­e­brate the way of life on the Bay, to restora­tion projects, in­ter­ac­tive ex­hi­bi­tions, and more than 60,000 ir­re­place­able ob­jects in our col­lec­tion.”

A mem­ber of the St. Michaels Fire Depart­ment and for­mer vol­un­teer at Eas­ton’s Wa­ter­fowl Fes­ti­val, Ruz­icka says she’s grown up around the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay and de­vel­oped a true love of its beauty.

The Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Mar­itime Mu­seum is a non­profit ed­u­ca­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to pre­serv­ing and ex­plor­ing the his­tory, en­vi­ron­ment, and cul­ture of the en­tire Ch­e­sa­peake Bay re­gion, and mak­ing this re­source avail­able to all.

Ev­ery as­pect of ful­fill­ing this mis­sion is driven by CBMM’s val­ues of rel­e­vancy, au­then­tic­ity, and stew­ard­ship, along with a com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing en­gag­ing guest ex­pe­ri­ences and trans­for­ma­tive ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram­ming, all while serv­ing as a vi­tal com­mu­nity partner.
