Three Millwood High School Students are in a summer internship program with the Oklahoma Archaeology Network.
“This program will teach our students not only about archaeology, but also will present to them information on prospective career paths,” a statement from the school said, “as well as how archaeology is being used to further understand the Tulsa Race Massacre.”
The interns will work with a team to produce the Oklahoma Archaeology Month poster and a variety of educational materials that will be distributed statewide in October.
The summer interns that complete the program will earn two academic credits at the University of Oklahoma and a $500 stipend.
“Exposing our students to a variety of opportunities for career exploration is important as they go through the educational process,” Supt. Cecilia Robinson Woods commented, “particularly like this program, since these students will be examining the amazing work archaelogists are doing today in recovering the remains of those who died in the 1921 tragic race massacre.”
