Museum Assistant

Em Shirilla is the new museum assistant at the Beaumier Center, assisting with collections management tasks, research and exhibition development. She’s a junior at NMU from Grand Rapids, double majoring in sociology and anthropology, with a concentration in archaeology. She is very active around campus as president of Cosplayers Unite, organizer of Superior Con, vice president of the Anthropology Club. “I love being involved in museum work because I love to learn about the significance of artifacts that we may not think about much, and how they relate to people and their histories."
