She’s worked behind the scenes of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. She’s spent hours in the background of the Gibbes Museum of Art in downtown Charleston. She’s even dug deep into the backstory of Latin American art in Mexico and Spain. But, when it comes to her academic and extracurricular achievements, María Carrillo-Marquina (CofC Honors ’19) has been front and center at the College of Charleston.
Graduating with majors in arts management and art history, Carrillo-Marquina has stood out not just as a student, but as the CofC chapter president of the national leadership honors society, Omicron Delta Kappa; as a senior senator for the Student Government Association; as a peer academic coach in the Center for Excellence in Peer Education; and as an orientation intern in the Office of New Student Programs.
