Summer 2013 archival intern announced
Winnipeg, Manitoba—Amanda Bartel is this year’s recipient of the Mennonite Brethren Historical Commission’s archival internship. The selection committee chose Amanda from a strong field of candidates from various universities and colleges in the US and Canada.
As intern, Amanda will spend one week at each of the four MB archival centers (Hillsboro, Fresno, Abbotsford, and Winnipeg) during the months of May and June 2013. In addition to experiencing a functioning archive, Amanda will be gathering and images that promote the mission of church archives.
“We are very pleased to award Amanda the archival internship. We hope this will be a rich experience for her and provide insights for the Commission as we document and communicate the story of God’s work in our lives,” says Don Isaac, chair of the Historical Commission.
Amanda is a student at Bluffton University, Bluffton, Ohio.
The internship is made possible in part by support from the Katie Funk Wiebe fund.
