Knows exactly what he wants?
Marlon Lewis '20
Marlon Lewis would go to the Museum of Science and Industry with his family in his hometown of Chicago at least 10 times a year, and each visit was just as amazing as the last. So when he needed to find an internship after his freshman year, Marlon didn’t think twice about where he wanted to apply. With the help of Wabash staff and administrators, Marlon landed a dream internship at the famous Chicago museum that combined his love of science and his skills in rhetoric and art. Throughout the 10 weeks he was there, Marlon was able to help redesign current exhibits, conduct research for upcoming exhibits, interact with guests, and work in the museum’s fabrication lab. “I want to take my love for science and my skills in art and rhetoric to communicate with people, advocate for people, and bring light to issues that are often overlooked,” said Marlon, who is also a Wabash Democracy and Public Discourse fellow. “I want my pictures to speak 1,000 words and my words to paint 1,000 pictures. That’s kind of the saying I have for myself.”
That’s a Wabash man for you. Seriously.
