This week we talk about one of the lesser known (but important) aspects of being a Lab and Field Manager.... volunteer coordination! Here at the Gray Fossil Site we try to add as much fun as we can into every part of the jobs. Shawn uses the likeness of his name to another famous School that divides up they're students into houses. Training and working together as a unit helps build personal strength.
The Wet Screeners
The Diggers/The Preppers
We're still looking for a picture of the other two houses.
This week Brian gets to takeover (well, kind of) as he talks about what it’s like to be the Comparative Collections Manager for The Center of Excellence in Paleontology and ETSU’s Geosciences Department.
