We have?welcomed two new interns to our?team, made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment. The Community Foundation Internship program aims to help build healthy Indiana community foundations and to give college students a chance to have real-life work experiences.
Brianna Harlan and Hannah Taylor, both students at Hanover College, will work on marketing and design for the Community Foundation. Their main duties will include enhancing the brand of the Foundation, creating marketing materials, researching markets and advertisement techniques, collecting donor stories and assembling informational packets and reports.
Brianna just began her sixth semester at Hanover where she is studying studio arts and business. She is an Art Scholar and a Business Scholar and participates in multiple extracurricular activities. After college she hopes to work for a nonprofit or small business to creatively spread and develop?worthwhile visions. After doing marketing for two not-for-profits in the past, she is excited to bring together all that she has learned to further the Scott County Community Foundation mission and brand while continuing to grow.
“Hannah and I are very excited, ecstatic even, to be a part of the Scott County Community Foundation team,” Brianna shared. “They do so much to push community development. I want to help capture the energy behind the work and progress; I hope to learn from it and reflect it in all I contribute during my internship.?
Hannah is a junior and she is majoring in communications. She is a member of the school?s Business Scholars program and will graduate from Hanover in May 2016. She is an active member of many student organizations at Hanover. She works as a Student Ambassador, holds a leadership position in her sorority and is involved with the school?s first dance marathon benefiting Riley Hospital for Children.
?I am incredibly honored and excited to work with the Scott County Community Foundation,? said Hannah. ?I am very interested to work with the donors and learn more about the types of grants and donations the Foundation receives. Hopefully the work that Brianna and I do can bring more recognition to the wonderful people of this community and the generous gifts to the Foundation.?
Brianna and Hannah will be working under the direction of Jaime Toppe, the Foundation?s Executive Director.
?We are so excited to have both students bring a fresh perspective to the Community Foundation,? said Toppe. ?Our marketing committee was very impressed with their qualifications and we are eager to see what ideas they have to bring to the table. Stay tuned in the coming months to see their vision!?
