Hi all, I’m Kat and I am the Volunteer Coordinator here at WaterFire! I started here in May 2018 as the Volunteer Management and Engagement intern as my last requirement before receiving my bachelor’s degree in Program and Event Management from the University of New Hampshire. In May 2019 I started my full-time position in the Volunteer Department creating relationships and coordinating volunteers, leading many, many ‘Woodpile Workouts’, preparing materials and communications for our downtown lightings and so much more.
Each year, in partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), award-winning educators from across Rhode Island take part in WaterFire. The annual fall event ‘Celebrating Educational Excellence in Rhode Island’ is part of our #Art4Impact Community Heroes event series.
This year we are unable to gather together at WaterFire so we are using our online channels to give all of our RI Teachers and Educators of the Year the recognition they so richly deserve.
