My thesis topic is “Ethnic Minority Heritage Values and U.S. Historic Preservation Significance Public Policy.” This has been a labor of much angst and hand wringing that I’m sure most grad students have experienced who’ve had to write one, but it’s completed and accepted. Many thanks to my program director and thesis committee for their understanding, advice, and working with me on this. When I handed it over and my thesis master gave me my completion letter back, I almost broke into a little dance of joy. I am so excited to be working on this and will start writing it in the late Spring/early summer.
