My fellow grad student and good friend Chris Valvano has been featured in an article in the Scranton Times, the paper from his hometown in Pennsylvania (You may recognize Scranton, as it is the town featured in “The Office”, and also where VP candidate Joe Biden grew up). The article discusses his growth into an archaeologist, as well as the incredibly amazing project he works on in New Philadelphia, a one-of-a-kind, 19th century, free African American town. Chris is a fantastic friend and a fellow professional that I am honored to know and have had the opportunity to work with, and this article certainly captures him at his best. Chris himself would never tell us about the article. Fortunately, his girlfriend Dimity isn’t shy. Congrats to Chris!!!
