Javier Segovia 
2019 INERN

My journey with the Tom Lea Institute began in 2019 during my final semester as a senior at UTEP while obtaining my undergraduate degree in history with a minor in museum studies. Focusing on the Tom Lea Institute’s digital library, collections, and education encouraged me to further apply my studies to the internship. After the completion of my internship, I was offered a contract position as the Collections and Education manager. I advise and encourage anyone interested in an internship with the Tom Lea Institute to apply as it will further advance their studies toward a career.
