Jasmine Heath ’18 MEd is scanning documents at Anne Spencer House, an historic home in Lynchburg’s Pierce Street Renaissance Historic District. Her “office” is a second-floor sunroom that overlooks the garden. Her “coworker,” currently hiding under a cabinet, is a black-and-white cat called G.H., short for Gregory Hayes.
