Thanks, Robert!

For the past month, you’ve been hearing from guest blogger Robert Anderson, a senior at Cape Cod Academy who has been volunteering at NMLC as part of his senior service project.  We have truly enjoyed working with Robert.  He is always ready and willing to help with anything.  He did a great job on getting the critter tank up and running despite equipment failures and logistical challenges!  He’s been a wonderful mentor to one of our younger volunteers.  When it came time to thank Robert, actually one of our other animal care volunteers said it best.  The following is an e-mail volunteer Bob Christian sent to Robert’s advisor, reprinted with permission.

“Let me introduce myself. My name is Bob Christian. I live in Wareham and as a Retired person I do volunteer work at the National Marine Life Center in Buzzard Bay. It’s been my pleasure over the past few months to work with Robert at the Center. I can’t say enough good things about him; he is always willing to give a helping hand without hesitation, never complains and is just a wonderful person to work with. Your School and Robert’s parents should be very proud of the young Man you have molded, in preparing him for his future endeavors . I don’t often write many recommendations for people but in Robert’s case I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to let you know that he is a credit to You his Parents and Cape Cod Academy. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet and work with Robert.

We couldn’t have said it better.  Thank you, Robert!
