Stevenson Public History major Alexandra Henry now has a job with the US Fish & Wildlife Service.  A December 2018 graduate of Stevenson's PHIST program, Alex is stationed at the USFWS National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV, just across the Potomac from Antietam National Battlefield. Her position, in the NCTC's museum and archives, involves transcribing audio recordings from the field.  No stranger to working with the federal government, Alex interned with the National Park Service at Monocacy National Battlefield during the summer of 2018. Throughout her time in the PHIST major, Alex was an active participant in our field activities.  An excellent student, Alex also excelled at our trips that involved hiking, horseback riding, pirate ship riding, and just about any other outdoor activity you could imagine.  Her love of American history is deep rooted, and she spends much of her free time engaging with our historic past.
