Good afternoon Volunteers!

I wanted to share some personal news this afternoon, and an update for the Volunteer Department.

After much consideration, I’ve accepted a new job outside the aquarium and will be starting Monday March 16th. My last day on staff at the aquarium will be Thursday March 12th.

Although I’m moving on from a staff position, I will definitely still be volunteering. I absolutely love the Oklahoma Aquarium and the people here, and I’m thrilled I can still be a part of the mission “to educate and inspire conservation of our aquatic world through interactive discovery.”

I leave the volunteer team in very good hands. Most of you know Chris Ray, who is currently one of our Guest Services Supervisors. I’ll let Chris tell you all about himself, but I will tell you that he is kind, professional, patient, smart, and very excited to move into this new role.

You can reach Chris via email at cray@okaquarium.org. His phone number will be the same as mine currently, 918-528-1533.

I have been honored to lead the amazing Oklahoma Aquarium volunteer team. Thank you for your service!
