The goal of the National Park Service Centennial is to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, stewards, and advocates, and here at Friends of Moccasin Bend, we take that challenge seriously. Each semester for the past two and a half years, the Friends have hosted an intern from UTC studying history, nonprofit management, or archeology. This semester, we are excited to work with Cassandra Davis.
Cassandra Davis was born and raised in Malaysia on the island of Borneo. Her father grew up in Chattanooga while her mother is a Native of Borneo. She has always been interested in the rich subject of History. Her father loved History and raised her to appreciate its importantance to the world. With her mother being a Native, she grew up loving her own culture and learning about others around her. She loves to travel, to explore the history and cultures of other countries. Cassandra also loves the outdoors from scuba diving, hiking to all types of outdoor activity.
She is a student at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga majoring in Anthropology with a minor in History. She hopes to continue on to graduate school with a focus on Underwater Archaeology. As the first Anthropology intern with the Friends, Cassandra hopes to bring awareness to many the History that Moccasin Bend has to offer. It has a rich culture and many future archeological findings. Chattanooga has an incredieble history to offer especially Moccasin Bend that dates back all the way to the first human contact.
