Katherine (Katie) Rutz-Robbins just completed her internship with MOTAL, funded by the Loren Doll Intern Scholarship. Whether you are already a MOTAL supporter, or you have just discovered MOTAL —or you are interested in an internship— you will want to see Katie's recent video message about her experience. She thanks MOTAL's supporters and encourages new members to be part of the MOTAL mission to educate people about education. To fulfill our mission, MOTAL will continue to fund internships to support young professionals like Katie who are entering fields related to education and museums.
