Throughout the year, we welcome to our team a small handful of interns. Many are current graduate students (like guest blogger Kate Gilmore), learning the preservation, planning and advocacy ropes “on the ground”. More recently, we’ve added to our ranks high school-aged interns from the Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design.
Working with these students has been a tremendous experience for interns and LW! staff alike! In addition to helping with “behind the scenes” projects, like updating our Online Buildings Database or taking photos, we’ve encouraged our WHSAD interns to engage with our membership right here on our blog. 2011 intern Ingrid partnered with Kate G. and wrote some of her own, original content — check it out!
But, as the expression goes, don’t take our word for it. Check out the video below, featuring WHSAD interns (including our very own Ingrid!) in the field and in action.
