Randy McDonald
Docent Volunteer of the Month

Randy has been volunteering at The Bryan Museum since March 2016 and completed docent training in January. He is a joy to have around the Museum, always greeting everyone with a smile, and as a retired school administrator and adjunct history instructor from Texas A&M with a master's degree focus in the American Southwest, he is an ideal docent! Randy leads a wonderfully informative and entertaining tour that everyone is sure to enjoy. If you are lucky enough to find Randy leading your tour, be sure to thank him for his time and dedication.

We asked Randy a few questions about his time at the Museum:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a granddad to a three-year-old little girl and have a great family scattered around the Houston area.

What enticed you to become a volunteer at The Bryan Museum?

I realized after serving as a guest services volunteer and shadowing several docents that a docent's role is where the fun is. And the history behind the artifacts is right up my alley.

What is your favorite part of being a Bryan Museum volunteer?

My favorite part of being a docent is meeting new and interesting people daily and listening to their stories and fielding their questions.

What is your favorite thing about the Museum?

The professional staff and my fellow docents are my favorite things about The Bryan.
