Millwood students participating in Summer Internship with the Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network (OKPAN).
Three Millwood High School Students are participating in a Summer Internship with the Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network. The internship will teach our students about archaeology as a discipline and prospective career path; how archaeology is being used to further the understanding of the Tulsa Race Massacre; and about the importance of archaeology to contemporary communities. Interns will work together with a diverse mentoring team to produce the 2021 "Oklahoma Archaeology Month" poster (which will be distributed statewide in October 2021) and other educational materials that they determine would be valuable to share with the broader community. Upon completion of the internship, they will earn 2 OU credits and a $500 stipend. Exposing our students to a variety of opportunities for career exploration is important to the educational process at Millwood Public Schools, according to Superintendent Robinson-Woods. This opportunity will allow for our students to support the amazing work involving the recovery of potential Greenwood massacre remains.
