Delta Zeta Foundation scholarship recipient works at her dream job

Stephanie Toole, Alpha Rho, Ohio Wesleyan University, received a Delta Zeta Foundation scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year and is working in the field she always dreamed she would work – museums and public history. Stephanie serves as the Education and Outreach Manager at the Massillon Museum, where she works with an imaginative team of staff and volunteers.


“Receiving a Delta Zeta Foundation Scholarship afforded me the opportunity to attend graduate school and gain the education necessary to enter my desired career field,” Stephanie said. “Receiving my Master of Arts in History has empowered me to become the museum professional that I have dreamed of since I was in high school.”


As part of her work at the Massillon Museum, she manages the museum’s Education Department, which includes planning classes and workshops; coordinating field trips and group tours; managing the museum’s ceramics studio and classrooms; representing the museum at off-site outreach events; and working with other museum staff to plan exhibitions and programming.


“I have felt so supported and encouraged in all of my endeavors by my Delta Zeta sisters throughout my undergraduate career and adult life,” Stephanie said. “Delta Zeta has been an immense source of support for me beyond graduation.”


Stephanie has remained connected to Delta Zeta through regular contact with sisters from Alpha Rho, and she has been active in both the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Alumnae Chapter and the Kent Alumnae Chapter.


Stephanie “gives graciously” through her work as the Massillon Museum is free to the public. The museum aims to make programming free or economically accessible so that as many people can participate as possible. She also helps develop long-lasting relationships with schools and non-profit organizations to better her community.
