Harriet Tubman Reenactor

Harriet Tubman Reenactor

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved people, family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry. During the Civil War, she served as an armed scout and spy for the United States Army. In her later years, Tubman was an activist in the struggle for women's suffrage.

Time Flies | Endowment Intern Jenna

By Jenna Schiferl

Interns Shannon Simmons, Rebecca Dymock, and Jenna Schiferl

As with each week I’ve spent at ETV, this one flew by. On Tuesday, I stood before a group of my peers, supervisors, and Endowment staff on Tuesday and presented an overview of what I've been working on for the past few weeks at the intern luncheon. I decided to create a PowerPoint presentation, but many of the interns showed a brief video showcasing a specific project they completed. I especially enjoyed watching my fellow Columbia intern, Rebecca Dymock, present her “Our Town” episode on Ridgeway, South Carolina.

Sharing Our Stories| Endowment Intern Rebecca

By Rebecca Dymock

Rebecca and Jenna interviewing Shannon

While normally I work on sharing the stories of people around the state of South Carolina, this week, I've been working on stories that come from within the walls of ETV. On Monday, we went up to the ETV Carolinas office in Rock Hill to finish up the intern interviews. The following day, we had the Endowment intern luncheon, here in Columbia, where each intern gave a short presentation about what we had been working on throughout our time with ETV. It was nice to talk with the other interns and learn about what they had been up to.

Endowment Interns working on the intern video

Week six of my internship has been all about making connections and sharing experiences. I started the week by interviewing with fellow interns Rebecca and Jenna. Rebecca is working on the Endowment intern promo video, so we met to discuss my experiences, so far, working with SCETV. During the interview, I was able to share some advice that I would give to future intern applicants, which I thought was nice.

Bill Stokes picked up a unique hobby years ago when he started paddling on the Catawba River. His hobby has grown into a practice that not only helps the environment but educates children about the negative effects of pollution.

Friday at the Frampton House

By Cassidy Haynes

Frampton House Plantation

As we round the corner of our fourth week, I look back on all the places we’ve visited, so far, with a fond appreciation. There is a wealth of wisdom to be gained from meeting new people and listening to their stories, but one of the most interesting ones we’ve heard to date has been from the Frampton House. The Frampton House, currently serving as the tourism center for the Lowcountry, is an old plantation home from the 1860s.
