The Cook Museum of Natural Science is proud to recognize its staff members on their accomplishments:

Congratulations to Toni Bruner, CMNS Education Programs Manager, who is part of The Best and Brightest Initiative’s inaugural class, sponsored by the Decatur Corridor Development. The new initiative’s aim is to attract young professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math to the City of Decatur, Alabama.

Toni was one of nine chosen from among the initiative’s 50 applicants. Toni will receive $15,000 to pay toward her college student loans by living and working in the City of Decatur for five years.

Congratulations are also in order for John Kelton, CMNS Director of Exhibits & Visitor Experience, for his recent recognition with the Vigil Honor by Coosa Lodge, Order of the Arrow, for his service to youth leadership development in the Boy Scouts of America.

The Order of the Arrow is an honor service organization with the BSA. The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the OA can bestow upon its members for service beyond their immediate responsibilities to their lodge, BSA council, and Scouting.
