Tony Rodriguez

Class of 2019

My name is Tony Rodriguez, and I am a senior at Appalachian State University majoring in both public history and secondary education for history. I have a great passion for history, especially the history of the American Revolutionary War, which is why I was super happy when I received word I got an internship at Cowpens National Battlefield. I was born, raised, and lived in Sandusky, Ohio for 19 years before I moved to North Carolina in 2014. I did competitive distance running for 10 years, with 10 of those years in cross country, and 6 ½ of those years in track. I am a pretty outgoing person who is always up for anything. Most of my family lives in Ohio, along with my best friends. I have been to South Carolina multiple times for vacations, so my LHIP experience in the park will be an experience for me. This internship is going to be great, and I look forward to meeting all the people I’ll be working with.

I also love anything Star Wars related and anything to do with the Marvel hero’s universe ranging from video games, to movies, to TV shows, and just any information on those topics. I also am a big fan of college football cheering for my school, Notre Dame, Alabama, and Oregon.
