Fulton Mansion Student Interns Get to Work

By Marsha Hendrix, Fulton Mansion site manager

The Friends of Fulton Mansion, with funding from the City of Rockport, are participating in a new student intern program in partnership with the Aransas County Education Foundation and the Aransas ISD. Three high school seniors began training in December to give tours and perform other special projects. These paid interns will work 10-15 hours per week during the school year, and potentially have the opportunity to continue working through the summer. The students are Victoria Garner, TJ Hill, and Johnna Ashcraft.

Each student will work on special projects during their internship. Johnna, as marketing specialist, will post to the Fulton Mansion Facebook page and distribute event materials throughout the community. Victoria will research and propose two new products for the gift shop as our retail specialist. TJ will gather materials about nearby places to eat and visit as our visitor services specialist.

Intern Johnna Ashcraft selects slides of the mansion restoration to have digitized for research projects and exhibits.

Fulton Mansion
is located in the resort area of Rockport-Fulton, 30 miles north of Corpus Christi. The site is part of the Texas Tropical Trail Region.

  1. This site is fantastic. I get to travel Texas in seconds in the comforts of my home. Though I'm not physically present in Texas, I can feel that the people are warm with the 3 interns --- TJ, Victoria and Johnna. You guys rock! Studying while working as interns is a fun and an exciting experience. And you get to know other people as well as improve your performance as students.
