The tour coordinator was recognized for her efforts at the local nonprofit.

A staff member from a Bucks County historical organization was recently recognized for the services she offers to her guests.

Jill Dansereau, the tour coordinator for Pearl S. Buck International, a nonprofit in Perkasie, was presented with the “Guest Service Excellence Award” at the recent National Travel and Tourism Week Event. The event was hosted by Visit Bucks County at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown.

“If you’ve ever met or spoken to Jill, you know how well-deserved this award is – she always goes above and beyond and truly ‘shines in serving the customer.'” the Perkasie organization said online. “Congratulations, Jill!!”

The nonprofit works to preserve the memory and legacy of author Pearl S. Buck, who called the Perkasie estate her home for many years. Known for her 1931 novel, The Good Earth, which documented life in rural China, Buck was known for her advocacy of the adoption of Chinese-born children, making her one of the first Americans to advocate mixed-race adoption. 

Her novels brought a level of awareness of Chinese culture to an American audience; throughout her life, Buck lived in the country herself, residing in Zhenjiang and Nanjing under the name 赛珍珠 (Sai Zhenzhu).
