Ogallala Commons is in full intern-seeking mode! This month, board members Dawn Hampton, Simone Elder, and Tom Giessel attended the Fort Hays State University Career fair to do just that. While there, the OC crew met up with 2011 intern, Scarlett Olsen, who is currently a student at FHSU.
Ogallala Commons’ Community Internship and Apprenticeship Program seeks to help participants explore hometown career options and build their skills in a unique way. By working with local communities and organizations, both the interns and their community partners build up key assets of the commonwealth and learn about the challenges presented in rural communities.
