The New Hampshire Women's Foundation (NHWF) is partnering with the NH Women's Heritage Trail; embarking on a project to honor the accomplishments of NH women.
Building on the work of the Commission on the Status of Women, which established the Women's Heritage Trail in 2008, NHWF is working with Heritage Trail advisors to make the pioneering work of NH women more prominent.
NHWF will be working to increase signage commemorating the work of Granite State women, to enhance the way their stories are told with digital media and to highlight women’s accomplishments with NH school children.
NHWF has hired Jubilee Byfield to oversee the program. She started working with the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail (BHT) as a high school student volunteer before serving as a student intern while pursuing a degree in sociology at the University of NH.
Byfield then became a public relations and marketing consultant and a trained tour guide for the BHT. She leads a youth-focused tour in addition to managing program development, social media marketing, and public relations.
