Farewell and Hello


I am waving farewell to some of the many interns I was fortunate to have over the summer. First, Celine Esmeir left to go back to University of Georgia where she was looking forward to working with sorority rush. She was responsible for lots of research and many behind-the-scenes tasks so her absence is an adjustment!

About a week later, Brooke Etheridge left us to head for her freshman year at UGA. She loved taking care of the office finances and is hoping for a finance career. Emma Taylor left around the same time for her second year at Georgia Tech and I know we will be texting her with I.T. questions.

Hope Etheridge is leaving now to return to Samford University, so I’m really going to have organizational problems. She did vital operational tasks and trained the new interns. Austin York is leaving to go back to Washington and Lee in a few days and his wit, humor and hard work will be missed.

Luckily, I have found some new interns to fill their shoes this fall. Two Kennesaw Mountain Magnet seniors, Libby and Stevie, will be helping out around the office and doing a research project based on evidence they are able to find in the office.

Instead of playing football at Dartmouth, Seth Simmer will be working for me this fall due to an injury that has forced him to stay home for the semester. Also, one of our summer interns, Olivia Kurtz, is staying on while she attends Kennesaw State University.

The outgoing interns have energized the warm weeks and brought challenges and a great deal of fun. As the season changes from summer to fall, I look forward to the changes the new students will bring!
