Frank Valadez, my friend and fellow UIUC graduate History alum, is featured in an American Historical Association spotlight today!
Frank is an amazingly flexible history thinker and practitioner who currently serves as Director of the Division for Public Education at the American Bar Association. He pursued undergraduate studies in History at Northwestern University and then received an MA in History from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Graduate students in History will be interested in the broad range of positions that Frank has held as writer, editor, and educator. He has served in administrative and leadership roles in historical and humanities organizations such as the Newberry Library, Chicago Public Schools, and the Chicago Metro History Fair. Frank’s career trajectory demonstrates how historians can make a real difference in historical education and public humanities.
Frank’s spotlight is featured on the AHA Persectives website.
