NSSAR Welcomes University Intern Ellen Bushong

Ellen Bushong is a senior history major at the University of Louisville with an emphasis in the humanities. In addition to being a full time student and Sons of the American Revolution Intern, Ellen also works at the University’s Resources for Academic Achievement Learning Resource Center as a tutor of both history and French language. In the past she has volunteered and interned for multiple non-profit organizations as well as historical societies including Helping Hands, a non-profit based out of her hometown of Columbia, Maryland, Louisville Scholar House, and the White House Historical Association in Washington, D.C. 
Over the summer, Ellen studied French and history abroad in Paris, where she gained a new appreciation for dessert, cheese, and high heels. In particular, Ellen was introduced to macaroons, which she cannot get enough of now, and is currently trying to learn to make them from scratch. Ellen is currently in the process of applying to graduate schools, where she hopes to obtain a master’s degree in public history or museum studies. When Ellen is not at work or school, she enjoys watching movies, lots and lots of movies, reading, especially Sherlock Holmes, trying out the various restaurants of Louisville, and shopping at consignment shops or flea markets.
