My name is Caydee Wightman and I am halfway through my last year at Longwood University. I am a member of the Cormier Honors College and I am majoring in History with a concentration in Public History and a minor in Art History.

I recently was accepted to the Cooperstown Graduate Program in upstate New York! I will be attending there Fall 2022 to complete my masters in museum studies and get the experience I need to become a professional museum worker!

I decided to major in Public History because it has always been my favorite subject and because my dream is to be a museum educator. I have always loved museums and learning about history, so I thought it would be a great career choice! I would love to work for any kind of museum, however, my dream is to work at an art museum. I love art history and being able to educate the community on what I love most would be my dream job!

I decided to come to Longwood University because when I first visited this school I just felt that it was going to be perfect for me. I love the campus and the students and faculty are the nicest people I have ever met. Since it is my last year here at Longwood, I intend to make the most of it and enjoy the place I have come to consider my home!

 This is me at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts working in the African Art collections!
