We are pleased to announce Cortnee Bollard, Old North Church educator, as the June Employee of the Month. Cortnee’s constantly cheerful and upbeat demeanor make her a tremendous asset to the Old North campus. Not only is she always eager to teach our visitors something new about our history, but she’s also willing to jump in and help wherever she’s needed. We are absolutely thrilled to have Cortnee on our team for a second season. Be sure to stop by and take a Behind-the-Scenes Tour with Cortnee!
“Whenever I see on the schedule that I’m working with Cortnee that day, a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders because Cortnee is absolutely amazing at her job, and I feel like the day will run more smoothly with her there. She handles everything with such grace. One of my favorite parts about working with Cortnee is how she interacts with the children who visit the church. She is always running after little kids to give them stickers or enthusiastically telling them the story of the “stolen treasure” wooden angels!”
