Email: EC-Eckman@wiu.edu I grew up in the Quad Cities, and the longer I stay here the more I appreciate this area. It is just a matter of utilizing the resources that are available, which is part of the reason why I enjoy Museum Studies. Museums are a great resource for communities because they provide educational opportunities and meaningful leisure activities for the surrounding community. I hope to work in a museum as an education or outreach coordinator to help make museum resources more accessible to current and potential visitors. My bachelor's degree in English from St. Ambrose University and several years of volunteer experience have provided a great foundation for this program.
