Community of Learners: Sybil Williamson Named President of National Docent Association


Docent Sybil Williamson leads a school tour of the exhibition Cubism and Its Legacy.

Hood Quarterly, spring 2012

Sybil Williamson, who has been a docent at the Hood since 1992, is playing a national leadership role in the museum education community. In October she became president of the National Docent Symposium Council (NDSC) for a two-year term beginning in 2011. Sybil’s engagement with the NDSC began in 2001, when she agreed to serve as a regional representative. Because of her great strengths as a leader and spokesperson, she was continually asked to assume additional responsibilities and subsequently served as secretary and then vice-president. Her appointment to the highest position in the organization is a great tribute to Sybil’s talents as well as an honor for the Hood, and we are proud to claim her as one of our own. Following her term, she will serve as past-president until 2015.The NDSC provides docent education and the exchange of ideas through a National Docent Symposium, held every two years, and by publishing a docent handbook and website.
