St. Mary’s College Student Jenna Gregory ’19 (art history) was the fifth St. Mary’s College recipient for an internship scholarship created by alumnus and SMCM Board of Trustees member John Bell ’95 that provides funds for students to intern with the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco, California. Elisabeth Cornu, museum adviser for GLBTHS, remarked that “Jenna has been wonderful, not only in helping us catalog a number of important items at the archives and helping with shelving work but also in assisting with exhibit preparation and doing desk duty at the museum. [She] has done all of her duties with characteristic enthusiasm and cheerfulness.”
According to Gregory, “I saw amazing works of art and learned so much that I will use to hopefully pursue a career in art museums. This internship was also extremely helpful in developing my interest in feminist and LGBTQ art history.”
A resident of Baltimore, Maryland, Gregory is pursuing minors in both religious studies and women, gender, and sexuality studies. Summer internships provide exclusive opportunities for St. Mary’s College students with an award ranging from $2,000 – $5,000.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
