Volunteer Staff

As all of our staff are volunteers, the term “volunteer staff” is redundant, yet informative.  Volunteers make this observatory what it is and allows us to support the school district and the larger community.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.”  — Vince Lombardi
