Winter term internships span the globe
Centre College students have completed winter-term internships at sites that span the globe. For the second year in a row, the college placed a student in Besançon, France, for work involving language and culture. Other students interned in locations ranging from the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland to Congressional offices on Capitol Hill in Washington.
A total of 24 students completed internships during the recent winter term.
The two students working at locations farthest from the campus were John Goodman, who did a language and culture internship in France, and Rosemary Rengel, who participated in advanced research in Oregon.
Emily Denham of Danville was one of two students who did their internships in Washington. Denham worked as a staff assistant with Kentucky Congressman Ernie Fletcher. Anne Baker worked on the staff of Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning.
Nine students were hosted by Danville businesses and agencies for their work experience. Those students and their host sites were Emily Cash, Department of Children's and Family Services; Carree Coffee, Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center; Chris DeHoag and John David Herald, Hilliard Lyons; Heather Freudenberger and Blake Malone, Heartland Veterinary Hospital; Sarah Gardiner, Kentucky Trust Company; Scott Guttery, Centre College athletic department; and Jessica Shi, the Advocate-Messenger newspaper.
Centre students earn academic credit and gain applied work experience during their internships. The program is coordinated by the college's Career Services Office.
