Sully Historic Site, the home of Richard Bland Lee (Northern Virginia’s first representative to Congress), is pleased to announce the fifth year of the Margaret C. Peck Youth Internship program, sponsored by the Sully Foundation, Ltd.
Juniors at Herndon, Chantilly and Westfield high schools in good standing and who have an interest in history are encouraged to apply for this paid, eight-month internship that runs from late April through December 2018. Up to three interns will be hired. Participants will gain experience in museum operations, public speaking, historic object collections, event programming and customer service.
Candidates must provide a completed application, written essay and teacher recommendation by March 30, 2018 for panel review. Candidates will be selected in April.
This internship is named in honor of former Sully Historic Site administrator and Sully Foundation member Margaret C. Peck. Ms. Peck is a longtime resident of the Herndon area, a local author 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.
