Congratulations to EWU McNair Scholar Hope Sands! Hope was accepted by Wichita State University's Anthropology Masters program with full funding. Hope graduated in the Spring of 2020 from Eastern Washington University with a major in Anthropology with a focus in Archaeology and Artifact Conservation, as well as a major in Philosophy. For her EWU McNair Summer Research Internship, Hope studied Fort Spokane under the mentorship of Dr. Brian Buchanan. The project looked at the historical past of Fort Spokane in an attempt to understand the archaeological and geographical significance of the Fort's construction.
EWU McNair is so excited for Hope. We're confident that she will succeed in graduate school and have a great impact on her communities.
