Stewards' (recent) AmeriCorps Alumni, Jenna Lynch, has been a vital addition to the staff at Antietam National Battlefield from the first day as an intern to her current role. During Jenna's service, she led and assisted in multiple events at Antietam from developing a Leave No Trace program to organizing a butterfly tagging event. The programs that she helped develop were meant for all ages, but she is most proud of the opportunity to present educational programs to school and home-school groups.Jenna Lynch with visitors during an arts and crafts exhibit on Presidents Day.
They discussed the significance of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and the Battle of Antietam.Her ability to show off what she can offer the park staff has led her to a seasonal Park Ranger position. From this position, she will be able to continue the work she started and continue to show Park Staff that she has what it takes to become a National Park Service Park Ranger.
From the Stewards Staff, congratulations on your position, Jenna, and to all the other Stewards Alumni who have progressed from an AmeriCorps service term to an opportunity within the same Agency or elsewhere.Jenna operating the table during Youth Day at Antietam National Battlefield
