Schreiner University to Premiere Exhibit on the Streets of Kerrville

On Monday April 23 Schreiner University will premiere a photographic exhibit featuring the streets of Kerrville.

The exhibit will be showcased in the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus. It is free and open to the public.

Schreiner senior Kimberley Nickel and Sara Schmidt, associate professor of library science put together the exhibit.
Nickel, a communication major, plans to attain a master’s in library and information science at the University of Washington. She is an intern in the SU library.

“It’s been a very interesting experience,” Nickel said. “I’ve definitely learned a lot about working in a library. I’ve also learned a lot about the streets in Kerrville and the people they’re named after. This city has quite an interesting history.”

The exhibit will feature the history of some of the major streets in Kerrville and includes both historical and contemporary photographs of the streets that were researched. It will run from April 23rd until May 14th in the Logan Library Grand Hall on the Schreiner University campus.
“When Kimmi came to me in the fall regarding an internship in the library, I had just recently attended a workshop on archival exhibits,” Schmidt said. “Immediately a project that I had brainstormed in the workshop came to mind. It’s been exciting to engage a student in working with the archives. It’s also been a great experience.”
