Volunteer of the Year - Kaman Law


Kaman Law began volunteering at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium in November 2004. She is one of the hardest working and most reliable volunteers at Rosicrucian Park. Her dedication and excellent customer service make her a vital part of the daily operations in the Museum. Kaman thrives in whatever she takes on as her hardworking and positive nature carries her through a myriad of tasks.


In the summer of 2006, Kaman lent wonderful support at our five-day park-wide event, the Epagomenal Festival. She was always willing to be of service as she effortlessly moved from helping set up garden booths, to playing the Egyptian game Senet with guests, to giving public lectures. Kaman has also assisted with many of our Outreach events, such as Pumpkins in the Park, Christmas in the Park, spring in Guadalupe Gardens, the Desert Dance Festival, and more. Here she has aided the museum as a Public Representative, engaging children and adults alike with educational activities and historical information.


Adding to her versatility, Kaman has also greatly contributed to the museum through her own developed ideas. She designed and has successfully facilitated two of our weekend workshops, the Egyptian Arm Bands and the Scavenger Hunt, for over two years. Furthermore, she has aided in other workshops and events by developing new activities for our guests to enjoy, such as the Calendar Wheel and other activity worksheets. When time permitted, she has also served in the Park’s Research Library in volunteer work. When our Museum newsletter began a new section, the “Volunteer Highlight,” Kaman was the first thought on everyone’s mind.


Kaman began as a volunteer in her freshmen year of high school and, even with other programs, coursework, and a long commute; she has continued to be a very reliable and responsible volunteer in the museum. She began because of her passion for education and love of ancient cultures. Her volunteer work at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum has helped her to become a more confident and outgoing person, as well as given her training in artifact handling, conservation principles, and a vast background in Egyptology.


Kaman is an asset and a joy to work with and we have been very fortunate to have her as a volunteer.
