This Year’s 15 Steele Interns
Arrive Today At Hall of Fame
COOPERSTOWN – Fifteen college students, the 2014 Frank and Peggy Steele interns, arrived in Cooperstown today to begin 10 weeks of study at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, through Aug. 8.
The 15 include Sarah Harris, a Hartwick College student from the Capitol District.
Now in its 14th year, the Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development offers undergrads and graduate students an opportunity to work alongside HoF staff in fields that match the interns’ majors, to attend career seminars, participate in public speaking, and research topics related to the Hall’s mission.
The students, from 14 universities, will intern in all departments, from education, to membership, to sales and licensing. More than 600 students applied for the slots; more than 290 have participated this since the program began in 2001.
