Two Undergrads Start with Chaco Canyon, Move on to Graduate School

— from Stephen Plog

Kudos to two of our undergraduates, Kate Bishop and Carrie Mongle, who have received five-year financial packages to begin their graduate studies next fall. Kate will be attending UCLA where she will focus on the archaeology of Mesoamerica and the American Southwest. Kate received her B.A. in 2011 from UVa after writing a senior honors thesis and working for the Chaco Archive for two years. This year she has continued to work for the Chaco Archive while also serving as an intern at the Smithsonian. Carrie will be attending SUNY-Stony Brook where she will pursue her interest in hominid evolution, particularly Neanderthals. She is currently writing a senior honors thesis and will graduate next month. Like Kate, she has worked for the Chaco Archive for the last few years. Kate and Carrie are now the 5th and 6th undergraduates in the last five years who have helped us build the Chaco Archive and then have headed to graduate school.
