Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum hires four summer interns

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. recently welcomed William Delano of Washington D.C., Laiken Harrigan of Townsend, Del., Katy Trice of Easton Md., and Nathan Samoriski of Victor, N.Y. as its 2018 summer interns. Delano is working in the Shipyard, Harrigan in Communications and Special Events, Trice in Education, and Samoriski in Curatorial.

Delano is currently enrolled in a two-year program at The International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, R.I., where he’s studying boatbuilding and restoration. This summer he will be working in CBMM’s Shipyard, helping with the restoration of Edna Lockwood. Delano has spent many summers on the Chesapeake Bay; it’s where he learned to sail, row and drive a boat.

While Harrigan has always lived near the Eastern Shore, it wasn’t until she started her undergraduate studies at Washington College in Chestertown, Md., that she felt a strong connection to the Bay. She is studying English and creative writing, and her summer research is focused on social media and marketing.

Trice graduated from Messiah College in Grantham, Pa. with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, a Secondary Education Teaching Certificate, and a TESOL minor. Now she is headed to Salisbury University to work on a master’s degree in English, and teach first year composition. Trice grew up on the Bay, and has always enjoyed spending time on the water kayaking with her friends. For her internship, she will be working as a camp counselor, assisting with planning summer camp curriculums, and taking inventory for family programming.

Samoriski is experiencing the Bay for the first time as he works in CBMM’s collections. A graduate from Stonehill College in Easton, Mass., with a degree in history and a minor in German, he is currently enrolled in the Cooperstown graduate program at SUNY Oneonta. He hopes to one-day work with museum collections, as either a collections manager or curator.

Over the course of the summer, these interns will have opportunities to participate in field related projects and behind-the-scenes operations, led by the museum’s professional staff. In addition, each week the interns will engage in a seminar to learn about each of CBMM’s departments.
