Meet the Summer 2012 Intern!
My name is Samantha (Sam) Marks, and I will be Fernbank’s Communications and Marketing intern for the summer of 2012. I am currently a fourth-year, Public Relations major at the University of Georgia, and I will be graduating in December of 2012.
I am a history lover, and a kid at heart. Earlier this year when I was considering places to apply for a summer internship, I could not think of anywhere more perfect than Fernbank Museum of Natural History. I was lucky enough to be chosen for the position, and now here I am!
I have only been at Fernbank for three days, but already I have done many amazing things. I spent last week familiarizing myself with the museum and meeting many members of the staff (I have only walked through the wrong door twice and forgotten a few names, so I would call that a success!). I also attended a couple of meetings, wrote a press release and began doing some research for future happenings at Fernbank.
I am fortunate to be interning at Fernbank during its 20th Anniversary celebration. On Saturday night, June 9, I was able to help at the event, Lost Oasis, which is the annual fundraiser put on by Fernbank’s Artemis Guild. The theme of the night was, The “Roaring” Twenties, in honor of the Museum’s special anniversary. Attendees were dressed in twenties-themed attire and spent the night celebrating all of the wonderful people who support the Museum.
I have learned so much in my first three days at Fernbank, and I can only hope that the rest of my time here will be as wonderful. I cannot wait to share all of my amazing experiences and adventures with all of the Fernbank lovers out there!
