Belfast Historical Society and Museum's summer student-interns are Will Hyland and Peter Spectre.

Will Hyland is a resident of Searsmont and a 2015 graduate of Belfast Area High School. His many achievements include serving as vice president of the class of 2015 and treasurer of the National Honor Society, is an Eagle Scout and Mitchell Scholar. He will study sports business at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H., this fall.

Peter Spectre, also a resident of Searsmont, is entering his senior year at Belfast Area High School in the fall. Peter’s achievements include being a student senator, co-president of the Liberian Education Fund, vice-president of the National Honor Society and delegate to Dirigo Boys State.

The Belfast Museum Summer Intern Program was initiated in 2002 and has proven to be valuable. Interns enable longer museum hours and participate in all aspects of museum operations. They conserve and catalog collections, greet visitors, give tours and, according to museum curator Megan Pinette, “generally make themselves indispensable. We simply can’t do without our interns.”

The museum’s summer student-intern program is supported by Bangor Savings Bank Foundation and museum membership.

Kirsten Caswell, class of 2015, has been awarded the Doris Wilson Hall Memorial Scholarship. She will attend the University of Maine at Orono in the fall. The scholarship is awarded annually by the Belfast Historical Society to a Belfast Area High School graduating senior planning to major in history, anthropology, archeology or museum studies at a four-year college.
