WW1 Intercept Survey Volunteers Exceeded Goal!
WW1 Intercept Survey volunteers were busy this summer surveying Minnesota History Center visitors. Volunteers easily reached the goal of 386 responses, and continued to exceed that goal by collecting 412 responses total!
Staff supervisor Kate Roberts said “Each time we conduct a History Center survey, I'm impressed by the professionalism and commitment of our volunteers. Participants in our recent World War 1 exhibit survey exceeded my expectations. Some were seasoned veterans of the survey routine; others were brand-new surveyors. Their combined enthusiasm and expertise resulted in a record number of surveys completed during a 7-week run. I've said it many times--we couldn't conduct our History Center surveys without our volunteers!”
