Our 2020 High School Internship Class
This year, eight Nantucket High School students joined the Nantucket Historical Association for an eight-week internship program. Our goal was to produce the event We All Speak Moby Dick. We broke up into four teams; marketing, event night planning, kids programming, and finance. With the help of professionals in each area, our group learned what it takes to run a public program. and put these skills into practice.
As we approached event night, shelter in place restrictions forced us to stay at home. While frustrated that we could not carry the event out as we had planned, the team came together to figure out a way we can share this event with our community in a digital format. We hope you enjoy the results. Stay healthy and safe!
