Meet Becky Hirsh, Mystic Aquarium’s Education Program Manager in the Education Department. Becky joined the Aquarium in December of 2003. Her main duties include organizing and running the Summer Camps and Overnights, managing Outreach Programs, supervising the part time staff and preparing and making sure our state license is obtained by keeping our ACA accreditation current. She also fills in as needed as a teacher.
She has been involved in County Extension and 4H since 1994 in many different rolls including group leader, adult member of the fair board and now a member of the NL County Extension board as their Secretary. She still volunteers for 4H events as well!
Her favorite part of 4H is the fair. It is the culmination for the end of the year where all the projects the youth have worked on are shown and they see how far they have come and what they can do. The youth that work as the various stewards of the fair are awesome. She encourages everyone to become involved in their community because it is so rewarding to help someone in need or learn from another person.
