School: Alcorn State University Major: Agricultural Sciences /Environmental Science Site: Great Smoky Mountains National Park
I am Timira Lockheart, a senior Agricultural Sciences /Environmental Science major, from Atlanta, Georgia. I attend school at Alcorn State University in Lorman, MS. At school, I am the president of the Alcorn MANRRS chapter, where we have to complete tons of community service and programs for the communities on campus as well as off campus. I am also a member of the honor student organization and a former Vice President of the Alcorn Model United Nations Team. I love to read, cook, and listen to music, but my absolute favorite thing is to be outside soaking up the sun. This summer working with HBCUI, I want to learn as much as I can about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the rangers’ different positions around the park. I would also love to explore the park and experience the calm and serenity of the Smoky Mountains!
