Dr. LaLone makes museum connection
New museum connections create class project opportunities and internship possibilities
Dr. LaLone has begun work as an applied Museum Planning Consultant for the New River Historical Society's Wilderness Road Regional Museum in Newbern, Virginia. This creates a great mini-project for the Spring 2013 SOCY 486 Engaging the Community class, and the potential for possible internships. Dr. LaLone is also involved in the New River Heritage Coalition, a coalition of 14 heritage museums in the New River Valley, and is keeping her eye out for possible internships in many of these museums too. Contact Dr. LaLone if you'd like her help in exploring possible internships in museum settings.
