We at CT Humanities are thrilled to announce that Becky Vitkauskas has joined Scott and Lian on the CTH Grants team! Becky will be a tremendous and empathetic addition to the CT Humanities staff.
A library and archives professional, Becky earned an MS in Library and Information Science (MSLIS) with a concentration in Cultural Heritage Informatics. Becky also studied social sciences, the arts and humanities, and even culinary arts.
Having worked in public, private, nonprofit, and academic institutions, Becky has experience with many activities our grantees will recognize. These include implementing programming, managing budgets, processing archival materials, stewarding collections, assessing metadata, and improving digital processes. For Becky, this work always has been and will continue to be, focusing on marginalized and underrepresented groups and people to help build more inclusive, accessible, and equitable communities.
Becky is excited to join CT Humanities and says, “As a libraries and archives professional, I’ve been in their shoes. I’m excited to leverage that knowledge and experience to help fund, and partner with, humanities groups across the state.”
When not working, Becky can often be buried in yarn, with an open book, and curled up with the pets.
