Docent Recognition 2020

August 1, 2020

On July 20th, Director Angie Dodson, the Education Staff, and MMFA docents virtually celebrated our annual graduation award ceremony. Even though we were physically apart, we wanted to take a moment to show our appreciation to this remarkable group of volunteers, celebrate the new docent graduates, announce the 2020-2021 Docent Council, and celebrate the accomplishments and meaningful impacts this group made in the galleries, studios, ArtWorks, and Montgomery Public School classrooms.

Every year, the MMFA educators reflect on the past school year in April and nominate docents who have made significant contributions to the year’s events and programs. This year was cut short in March but even with the short year, our docents contributed an overall 1,583 hours of their time to the MMFA!

Congratulations to this year’s award recipients! We miss you and look forward to being with you again.
