New Addition to the Intern Team

Today at HSP we were excited to welcome a new general intern to our team, Margaret Zieke. Margaret is a senior at Elmhurst College working towards a degree in History.  After she has finished her degree she’s looking into possibly going on to study law and ultimately finding her career. Margaret comes to us from a small town in Minnesota called Caledonia. After branching out away from her hometown, Margaret was exposed to a whole new environment and found a passion for learning and exploring. In the past, Margaret has worked with HSP before as a volunteer. For a project in her Intercultural Seminar class she volunteered here with her classmates. Her most recent volunteer experience was when she worked at the La Crosse Historical Society in La Crosse, Wisconsin. At the La Crosse Historical Society she worked as a collections intern cataloging artifacts.

In her free time she loves to read, she especially likes historical non-fiction. Her favorite writers include David McCullough and David Sedaris. Some hobbies Margaret enjoys are being a Trivial Pursuit guru and playing the bagpipes. During her time here at HSP, Margaret hopes to find out more about the inner workings of a non-profit and gain business experience. With her upbeat attitude and eagerness to learn new things, we know she will fit in perfectly here at HSP. Help us in welcoming our new intern Margaret Zieke.
