For spring 2021, Emily Cherkauskas, a sophomore double major in communication studies and English with minors in creative writing and women’s and gender studies, processed Wilkes University’s fourth president’s collection, The Christopher N. Breiseth papers, at the Wilkes University Archives.
Cherkauskas is a staff member of The Beacon as an editor for the Life, Arts & Entertainment section and will work as editor-in-chief for the fall 2021 semester. She plans to go into a career that allows her to utilize and enhance her writing and research skills.
