Paid Historic Internship Offered For Students at Three High Schools

Sully Historic Site

Sully Historic Site announces the newly established Margaret C. Peck Youth Internship program, sponsored by the Sully Foundation, Ltd.

Juniors at Herndon, Chantilly and Westfield high schools who are in good standing and have an interest in history are encouraged to apply for this paid nine-month internship that runs April through December 2014. Up to three interns will be hired. Participants will gain experience in museum operations, public speaking, historic object collections, event programming and museum store and visitor center operations.

Sully Historic Site, which is owned and operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority, will begin accepting applications for this internship program in December 2013. Candidates will be asked to provide a completed application, written essay, and teacher recommendations by January 31, 2014 for panel review. 

The internship is named in honor of former Sully Historic Site Administrator and Sully Foundation Member, Margaret C. Peck.  Peck is a longtime resident of the Herndon area, and a former educator with the Fairfax County Public School system. This internship honors her community service, dedication to educating young adults, and historic preservation efforts in the surrounding community.
