IARc heads to Washington for Preservation Advocacy Week

March 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

IARc graduate students Catherine French, Mardita Murphy, and Audrey Waggoner joined IARc professor Jo Leimenstoll  on a trip to Washington, D.C. for Preservation Advocacy Week during the first week of March. Also in attendance were two UNCG graduate students within the public history/historic preservation program . This group from UNCG joined State Historic Preservation Officers and local preservation developers to lobby for continued support for preservation efforts on the federal and state levels.  This group represented North Carolina and divided into two teams covering 14 congressional districts in their pitch to lawmakers. Grad students were thrilled at the opportunity to make such an impact on historic preservation policy. Murphy stated, “It was an amazing experience!”
