Calise, a Gainesville, Florida, native pursuing a master’s degree in public history, is working this summer at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, under the Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development.

Each of the 19 interns specializes in aspects of museum work that include education, digital strategy, manuscript archives and library research. Calise aspires to become a museum curator after graduation.

“Every morning is my favorite part of the day, because I get to walk through the Hall of Fame plaque gallery,” Calise said. “You’re walking through history, basically, every morning. It humbles you and you realize that you’re working in such a fantastic place.”
