One day Quantia “Key” Fletcher found that years of study and work led her to the right career.

The Northwestern State University alumna was working for the National Park Service as a guide at the Cane River Creole National Historical Park near Natchitoches when her future became clearer. Her job included meeting with park visitors from around the world sharing Louisiana history

“There would be mornings that I would walk the acres of land opening the historic structures for guests and imagine what it must have been like to live and work on that site both enslaved and free,” said Fletcher. “The place engulfed me. The job spoke to me. I knew the work was important. It was at this site that I realized that I had found my place and passion in storytelling, history and preservation.”
