BSA Celebrates Summer Interns

In celebration of #NationalInternDay, we are thrilled to feature our outstanding interns who have been with us this summer! Pictured above (from left to right) are Aidan Taylor, Colin Finnigan, Lily Cate King, Alston Brown, Ellen Overstreet, and Rich Fridy. Jayden Woullard and Evelyn Ramirez (not pictured) joined our team for the first half of the summer.

Aidan is a native of Red Banks, MS, and is a Graduate Student in the MFA in Historic Preservation program. Aidan has been interning with BSA for two years now! This summer, he has learned “just how exciting and rewarding it can be to work on small-town projects” within his home state.

Lily Cate, originally from Tupelo, is a rising Junior at Mississippi State in the Interior Design program. She has been a tremendous help in interiors-focused projects and has also been involved in curating content and items for The Shop by BSA. Lily Cate enjoys painting, reading, and sewing clothes in her free time.

Alston is a rising 5th-year student from Madison. This summer, he has enjoyed learning “all the necessary details before a project even gets into the design phase.” From research, site visits, attending client meetings, measuring and setting up historic structures reports, Alston says, “these are critical primary aspects before even designing or preserving a building.” He has also played piano for 14 years.

Ellen is originally from Wiggins and is entering her fourth year at MSU. Ellen has primarily been working on a courthouse restoration project in North Mississippi. She is also researching 3D printing ceramics and has presented research at the Research Symposium held at MSU. Ellen spends most of her downtime crocheting or baking.

Colin and Rich are Master of Architecture graduates from the Georgia Tech School of Architecture. Both have actively participated in the Emmett Till Workshop, focusing on projects related to Emmett Till’s brutal death and the associated historic sites, recently federally protected by President Biden’s executive proclamation.

We are grateful to have had them with us for a few months! If you know any other talented designers with a strong interest in historic preservation, please direct them to our Careers page to view our current openings.
