HISTORY MAJOR SELECTED FOR INTERNSHIP AT CONNECTICUT HISTORICAL SOCIETY

 

Eastern History major Jordan Butler has been selected for an internship at the Connecticut Historical Society. 

Jordan let us know some details about the internship: “This internship is four days a week from June to August, and the first three days will switch between working with the museum educator, the archivist, and the exhibit creator. The last day of the week I will be working wherever I am needed in the museum. The path that led me to this opportunity has required a lot of hard work and persistence.

Jordan also reflected on working with Eastern faculty: “I became a History major (with a concentration in American Studies) sophomore year of college. Since declaring my major, I had the opportunity to become a research assistant, join the National History Honors Society, and take many interesting History and American Studies courses. In addition, I had immense support from professors, such as Dr. Tucker and Dr. Balcerski, who consistently helped and encouraged me throughout my college career. These experiences all gave me the skills and knowledge necessary for pursuing my dream career in a museum.

“Now Graduation this spring is anticipated with immense excitement because I know this internship is the first step to a fulfilling, life-long career in the field of history.”

Congratulations to Jordan!
