Historical Education for All!
In the summer of 2018, Meg received funding through Beloit College’s Common Grant, and got credit while working at the Historic Oak View County Park, where she created an archives organizational aid and two resource guides based on archival research. This past summer, 2019, she graduated to a paid staff member position and worked at the front desk, welcoming visitors to the historic site, and helped open and lock up, including some weekends, also taking care of our five goats.
She helped draft text for their upcoming Christmas program and presented about Oak View at the state capitol on July 4th. She additionally helped co-led their Farm Camp for children ages 7-11 and presented her own programs for the camp and distribute lunches through their summer meals program for students who receive free or reduced lunch during the school year.
