GALVESTON — Within the hull of a World War II U.S. Navy vessel, a pair of graduate students from Lubbock are cataloging artifacts that one day might be displayed at a Galveston museum.

Sarah Faulkner and Lisa Simmons, both 24, are working aboard the USS Stewart, a destroyer escort, as part of their masters program in museum science at Texas Tech University.

The students’ goal is to provide more public access to the artifacts aboard the ship, which is open for public tours at the American Undersea Warfare Center at Seawolf Park.
