Carmella Cadusale called North Canton home during her time as an undergraduate at Walsh University, where she graduated in 2014 with a B.A. in both History and Museum Studies. As a student at Walsh, Carmella first interned at Hoover Historical Center conducting tours and building exhibits. This was followed with an internship at the Professional Football Hall of Fame, where Carmella led a collection management project of PFHoF’s collection of stadium blankets and gear ranging from the early 1900s to the present.
Upon graduating from Walsh University, Carmella pursued her Master of Arts degree from Youngstown State University and received a fully funded graduate assistantship. While at YSU, Carmella was Chapter President for Phi Alpha Theta, the National Honors Society for History, was Co-Chair of the student run conference, History Across the Humanities, and a member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. During this time, Carmella was building multiple exhibits for the Sutliff Museum (Warren, Ohio) and Youngstown’s Historical Center for Industry and Labor. She graduated from YSU in early-August 2016 with Departmental Honors, and her Master’s thesis, Identity and Allegiance: Race and Ethnicity in the Era of the Philippine-American War, 1898-1914, received the Martin Berger Graduate Research Award for 2016.
“I am thrilled to be back in the North Canton area! My love for history and my early training as a museum professional was established at the university just down the street. I am very excited to be part of an organization whose mission centers on the preservation and celebration of their community’s history and legacy!”
