The Huntington Museum of Art has named Fred Almeida of Huntington as its Volunteer of the Year for Fiscal Year 2023.
The Volunteer of the Year is chosen by the Museum’s staff through a vote. Staff members seek to award volunteers who regularly go above and beyond and work continuously to uphold the Museum’s three-prong mission of art, education, and nature.
Fred has served as a docent or volunteer tour guide at the Huntington Museum of Art since 2015. He has given multiple school tours in addition to presenting guided tours to adults during the 4th Tuesday Tour Series at HMA. “Fred is a great volunteer, who is always ready to pitch in and help,” said HMA Director of Education Cindy Dearborn. “Fred is extremely interested in art and that comes across to the students and adults on the tours he leads. He is committed to helping visitors to the Huntington Museum of Art learn more about the objects of art on display. He is someone to whom our other docents look to for advice and he very much deserves this award.”
