North Rowan student gets real-world experience with internship

SPENCER — The Spencer Doll and Toy Museum, Rowan County’s newest museum, is pleased to have Ebony Burris join the museum staff as an intern.
The North Rowan High School junior joined the museum staff over the summer and will continue her internship through the end of the school year.
Burris is excited about working on a variety of marketing projects and events for the museum. Her latest project includes “Pink Out at the Museum” which will take place on Oct. 11. This event idea is one that she created and spearheaded.
Burris learned of internship opportunities at the museum through North Rowan. Her interest in participating in an internship stemmed from the desire to “gain some real world experience before graduating.”
Burris will spend about 10 hours a week at the museum. The position is unpaid, but Burris realizes the benefit of the internship as a great opportunity for learning, networking and resume-building; an opportunity to test drive her skills and build her portfolio.
The intern curriculum includes an orientation to the goals and mission of the Spencer Doll and Toy Museum and an overview of the marketing objectives. Some responsibilities include: article writing and distribution; press release writing and syndication; collecting and maintaining a database of media contacts; researching and contacting new media and blogging contacts; blogging; participating in doll shows.
