20 Jun Getting Started and Looking Forward to the Rest of the Summer as an L.H.I.P. Intern with the NPS!!!
My name is Alejandro Garcia. I live in El Paso, Texas and I will be working at the Chamizal National Memorial here on the US-Mexico border. I am currently completing my Master’s degree in history at UTEP, where I focus on public history and borderlands history. This internship will be my first, and I am looking forward to working with the National Park Service (NPS) and engaging in cultural resource work at the park. I have begun my internship offsite at a community partner institution, and we are currently transcribing oral histories for an upcoming exhibit and in order to add to the archive of another community partner institution. The project I will be engaged in will consist of an inventory of non-accessioned items as a means of updating the “Scope Of Collections Statement” here at CHAM. I am looking forward to meeting our goals for this project this summer. Additionally, I am looking forward to meeting all the other Latino Heritage Internship Program I(LHIP) nterns this August in Washington D.C.!
¡¡¡Pa’lante mi gente!!!
