Head Docent Promoted

SOHO is proud to announce that Athena Jaharis has been named Assistant Curator of Collections to the Whaley House Museum. Athena has been with the Whaley House as a docent for 5 1/2 years.

A graduate of our highly successful volunteer junior docent program, she was first employed in 2003, and in 2005 promoted to head docent status. She has been assisting with the Whaley House's interpretive clothing program for the past three years. Since entering college, she returns to work with SOHO every summer. Athena is an accomplished period clothing seamstress, a Civil War reenactor, and social historian.

She is a student at Baylor University in Waco, Texas where she has a double major in Museum Studies and History. While school is in session she works at the Texas Ranger Museum as a Collections Intern, and is currently cataloguing the long arms collection. Athena also has a fellowship with the Historic Waco Foundation; the foundation is located in Waco, Texas, where they manage four house museums. Athena docents at the Fort House, a Greek Revival home.

In addition to her duties as head docent this summer, she is cataloguing for the Whaley House Museum its collections as an integral part of the administrative team completing a historic house furnishings report.

Athena also has been a great help this summer in assisting Museum Staff Coordinator, Victor Santana with docent training and orientation for the junior and regular docent program.

Athena has chosen collections management as her career, she will be graduating in 2008 and we look forward to her full time employment with SOHO at that time.
