Volunteer Spotlight

Lowell National Historical Park intern Martha poses for a photo

Today Lowell National Historical Park is highlighting one of our fabulous volunteers, Martha Tubinis. Martha is here as an intern from the Tufts University Graduate Museum Studies Program.

Martha has been working in Lowell for 3 months and takes pride in being part of our team here at LNHP. She has played a tremendous role in the early planning process of re-imagining the immigration exhibit at the Mogan Cultural Center. Martha believes diverse perspectives, input, and feedback are an integral part of the new exhibit development process.

A woman with many interests, Martha enjoys skiing, tennis, and rock and fossil hunting in my spare time.

Martha finished up her internship with the park on April 12th. All of us here at Lowell National Historical Park wants to say "thank you" to Martha for her incredible work!

Lowell National Historical Park has a great group of volunteers who serve the park and enable us to thrive. Today we want to highlight Ed Souza, a proud member of the National Park Service Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program.

Ed Souza has been volunteering at Lowell NHP for three and a half years. In that time, he's staffed the Boott Cotton Mills Museum and the Mill Girls and Immigrants Exhibit. Ed also assists with First Mate duties on the canal boat tours during the summer. Ed is deeply passionate about the National Park Service. He started volunteering at the park to learn more about Lowell's history and he enjoys assisting visitors as they gain a deeper understanding of Lowell's place in the Industrial Revolution in the museums. If you visit the park on a Wednesday, be sure to say hi to Ed!

Lowell National Historical Park is fortunate to have an incredible group of volunteers who help the park thrive. Today we want to highlight one of these special supporters, Lee Knust.

Lee volunteers at the Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center, introducing visitors to the park and sharing his knowledge and insights about the park and the city. Over the past eleven years of volunteer work at LNHP, Lee has met people from all over the world visiting the Spindle City. In a recent conversation Lee noted that working at the park gives him a special job and a unique connection to his community. Lee is also an active member of his church, and enjoys spending quality time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. If you are visiting the park on a Tuesday or Thursday morning make sure you come say hello and thanks to Lee for his dedication to the National Park!
