Congratulations to Maribeth Barnes, a first year volunteer who has earned her SCDNR certification! Maribeth, originally from Kinston, NC, received her degree in Animal Science from NC State University. She, her husband Chad, their son Colby and daughter Allison moved to Pawleys Island from Clayton, NC 4 years ago. Maribeth is employed in Myrtle Beach by TS03 which makes sterilization units for health care devices.

Always interested in the turtle program but not knowing how to get involved, Maribeth got to know Judy K. through both their husbands. Judy brought Maribeth to our meeting and basically trained her since Maribeth could only volunteer on weekends. Maribeth’s organizational skills as well as her quick grasp of the procedure have been impressive. She enjoys the inventories and does a good job with the different aspects. Welcome to the team!

Congratulations to Maribeth Barnes for earning her SC Department of Natural Resources certification!
