NU Grad Student Earns Honorable Mention Prize From American Alliance Of Museums
Christine Bacon, a graduate student at Niagara University, has been awarded an honorable mention designation by the nation’s top professional museum association, the American Alliance of Museums.
Bacon’s paper, A Thousand Invisible Cords, was part of the AAM’s Education Future Fiction Challenge and included in an application for the Ford W. Bell Fellowship with the AAM’s Center for the Future of Museums.
A resident of Williamsville, Bacon is studying toward a master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies at NU. She is focusing on the disciplines of history, museum studies, education, writing, tourism, economic development, architecture, historic preservation, and urban planning, among others.
Bacon was “shocked and excited” to be selected for the AAM award, “because of the prestige of the sponsoring organization and the national scope of the fiction challenge.”
