We are saddened to announce the departure of Faye Charpentier, our Lead Educator, but we are excited to report that she has accepted an incredible position as Visitor Program Director at King’s Chapel, a stellar move for her career.
In her three years at Old North, Faye emerged as a leader in the education staff. She is extremely hardworking, professional, and inquisitive. Her sincerity shines through in her tours and interactions with the public. These qualities earned her the Employee of the Season Award in the fall of 2015, which is presented to an Old North Foundation employee who exemplifies the highest standards of our team, based on several factors including interactions with our visitors, ability to handle daily duties and unexpected situations, teamwork, reliability and dedication, and presentation skills. When she was promoted to Lead Educator this year, she took on an immense amount of responsibilities with such grace and efficiency. Her organization and her creativity is impressive.
Faye joined the Old North Foundation’s education team in July 2013. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 2013 with a degree in History and a minor in Philosophy, and she received her MA in Public History from Northeastern University in 2015. She has interned at historical institutions in the Boston area, including the South End Historical Society and Historic Newton. Faye has also worked for Our Marathon: The Boston Bombing Digital Archive.
Faye showed tremendous growth over her time with us and we consider ourselves lucky to have had her as a member of our team and wish her the best of luck at King’s Chapel! We look forward to seeing her around on the Freedom Trail.
