Thank You, Intern
We thank Heather Williams, a graduate student in Duquesne University’s Public History program, for volunteering in the fall of 2016. A resident of Wilkinsburg, Heather first became interested in PHLF after seeing the positive impact of our community development work in the Hamnett Place neighborhood.
During her time at PHLF, Heather added information to our Architect’s Database, assisted with walking tours, helped organize and lead several educational programs, and proofread the Courthouse and Colfax books. After completing her volunteer internship with PHLF in December 2016, Heather Williams wrote:
“My experience at PHLF was a positive one, and I would highly recommend an internship with them to any students of history or other related fields. Sitting in a classroom learning about bringing history to the public, to all ages and walks of life, is one thing, but actually gaining hands-on experience doing so in the real world is just as valuable a skill.”
