Please join us in welcoming Adrianna Chesnut to CT Humanities where she will apply her organizational and cataloging expertise to support grant making and finance.
Adrianna graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and Human Rights and a minor in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from the University of Connecticut. She grew up in Southeastern CT, where she spent six years at the Groton Public Library, working to provide efficient and ample access to public resources. During her time at UConn, Adrianna interned with the Human Rights and Alternative Press Collections of the university library archives, cataloging historical documents from 1960s Connecticut. Through these experiences, she developed a passion for furthering access to education and the humanities as they are essential to human rights.
Adrianna is excited to be a part of the CTH team as she is dedicated to the mission of the organization to strengthen the communities of the state she grew up in through informed engagement with the humanities and the world around us.
Adrianna is an avid lover of cats and growing up, her family always had five or more!
