It is with mixed emotions that the LUM staff says “farewell” and “well done” to our fabulously talented and hardworking interns – Amanda Bajzatt, Katherine Brandes, Evan Guse, Jashay Johnson-Martin, Rebekah Niedner, & Brittany Rooze. LUM has truly been blessed to have 6 interns working with various programs since January 2013. As many can relate, the time with our interns has flown by.
To celebrate the LUM interns were invited to an appreciation party hosted by all of the LUM staff — and cake. All interns will be graduating soon and LUM wishes them very well. Each of them used their unique talents to make LUM better.
So – Thank you, Congratulations, and Farewell (for now) – to Amanda, Katie, Evan, ‘Shay, Rebekah, and Brittany.
