Dr. Stacey G. H. Yap who had worked on the Certificate in Historic Preservation (under M.Ed. Heritage Studies) program for more than a year was so pleased that the first three graduate courses were launched in Spring of 2008. In conjunction with this launch, New Hampshire Preservation Alliance celebrated the debut of the Certificate by holding their two-day biannual conference at Plymouth State. President Steen kicked off the first day with a warm welcome to about 200 participants. Apart from launching the Certificate courses, Stacey took a three-week trip to Southeast Asia visiting Singapore, Malaysia and Central Vietnam. Her interest in historic preservation in Vietnam prompted her to write a short article, titled “Revising the Past” which will appear in PSU’s Alumni Magazine this Fall.
