Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Courthouse Program Manager Henry Schunk, who will be leaving staff at the end of the summer. He and his partner of five years, Caroline, are moving to Washington DC where she will be starting a new job with the Justice Department.
Henry was a jack of all trades here at our offices at the Moakley. Hired as the Office Administrator in September of 2019, Henry also led hundreds of in-person tours at the Moakley – sharing with visitors his love of the building’s architecture and its relationship to the ideals and principles of the justice system and our democracy,
Henry accomplished much in his three years here:
He developed Discovering Justice’s online tour of the Moakley, which provides an in depth look at the Courthouse from your desktop
He started the organization’s Events Program in conjunction with the Courthouse, bringing speakers to the Moakley to talk about restorative justice, the courts and the media, and the complexities of free speech.
He worked with Matt Wilson, Discovering Justice’s Executive Director to help create and recruit for the organization’s new Fellowship Program. Henry was the chief recruiter for that program and helped orient our 18 Fellows to the organization.,
And while he was not running these major projects, he was providing support to other staff with his online talents, writing and formatting this bi monthly newsletter for the past two years (!), sharing his love and knowledge of history, and infusing the staff with his passion for working for justice..
While the staff at Discovering Justice is sad to see Henry leave, we are excited to see what is next and how he uses his skills and talents to change the world.
Keep up the great work Henry!
-Matt Wilson and the whole Discovering Justice Staff
