Nominations now accepted for director’s volunteer award

In 2010, Mike Cooke received the Director’s Award from Pier Oddone and a hug from his toddler son.

Each year, more than 200 employees, users and contractors go above and beyond their everyday duties to further outreach and education at the laboratory.

These volunteers are role models and mentors for teachers and students, answer tough questions about Fermilab and its science, maintain Lederman Science Center exhibits, visit area classrooms and more.

Once a year at a reception, the laboratory recognizes the efforts of an especially dedicated volunteer. Please let the Education Office know when you’re impressed by a colleague’s contribution.

Nominate a Fermilab staff member, user or contractor candidate for the director’s volunteer award. The Education Office will take nominations until Nov. 28. This year’s reception will take place on Dec. 7.
