Kathryn Erwin, CTA, Lansing, MI
Docent, Michigan Historical Museum
"I am a retired civil servant. In retirement, I am a volunteer at the Michigan Historical Museum. As a Docent, I greet visitors and lead tours of groups of school children, senior groups and whoever signs up, for a tour of our Museum. As a CTA, I feel more positive about giving local information to visitors, both solicited and unsolicited. I also volunteer for the GLCVB. My knowledge of the Lansing area is vital, in helping visitors to our area."

The Program also helps to increase the awareness of the value that visitors bring to our community with stakeholders and local citizens. Our CTAs play a vital role in making our mid-Michigan region a desirable destination for visitors."
