Caroline, Centre, was chosen as the 2012 Catherine Schroeder Graf Heritage Museum Intern. Caroline is majoring in history and minoring in English and gender studies, and will graduate in spring 2014. An active member of Zeta Gamma Chapter, Caroline has served on the Membership Committee and currently serves on the Academic Excellence Committee.

She served as a resident assistant for first-year women last year and will be serving as a resident director in the upcoming year. She also gives tours to prospective Centre students as a member of Colonel Corps. This past spring, Caroline interned for the Kentucky School for the Deaf Jacobs Hall Museum, where she conducted research and created several new displays for the museum. For her major project for the internship, she wrote a paper about the Kentucky School for the Deaf baseball program from 1898–1945.
Caroline has assisted with preparations for The Heritage Museum’s display at Convention and has designed an exhibit to be displayed at Convention in Jacksonville, Fla., next week called “A Tradition of Leadership: Kappa 1912, Looking Back 100 Years.” Caroline will continue to work with Kappa’s archivist and curator Kylie Smith, Simpson, at the Heritage Museum this summer.

Emily’s summer projects have consisted of assisting with Convention preparations and guest blogging for the Kappa blog. She will continue to work throughout the summer with several departments at Fraternity Headquarters, including the communications department and other departments as needed.
Both Caroline and Emily will attend the Fraternity’s General Convention this month. Staff members from both Fraternity Headquarters and the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation are excited to have Caroline and Emily as part of the Kappa family this summer.
