Arts & Sciences graduate receives prestigious internship


Sarah Negron, who graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a bachelor’s degree in biology, in Arts & Sciences, in 2014, is the recipient of the Regional Arts Commission’s prestigious Katherine Dunham Internship.

Named in honor of St. Louis native and dancer, choreographer and activist Katherine Dunham, the internship was created to give African-Americans an opportunity to explore, gain experience in and be mentored in the field of arts administration to prepare for later employment and success.

“I hope use this internship to network with individuals in the field and gain experience shadowing members of the Regional Arts Commission in order to develop a well-rounded understanding of what it takes to bring art to life in St. Louis,” Negron said. “I also hope to gain a lot of hands-on experience with the grant-writing and approval process.”
