  • Introduce myself. I got involved with museums during undergraduate at Western Michigan University. I loved history but I didn’t want to teach in the classroom. I received my BA in public history and went on to get an MA in museum studies. I was the NYS History Day coordinator and then moved to Ohio in 2006 to be the coordinator for NHD-OH. This is program is a perfect melding of the two things I loved, history and the process of learning history. Has anyone here every heard of History Day or ever been involved?
