Jacob Leisler Institute Spring intern, Riley Denaker, began her internship at the Institute on Thursday, January 26. Ms. Denaker, who comes via SUNY-New Paltz, will be interning on Thursdays during the Spring 2017 semester for school credit. She is currently pursuing degrees in the French language and early American history.
Ms. Denaker is the Institute’s second student intern. The Institute is working on expanding our intern program to enable more students to learn archival, research, and documentary editing techniques. This is particularly important as higher learning institutions face possible cutbacks in government support in these areas.
We welcome Riley to our team.
