Congratulations and Thank You to Our Interns Brian, Amanda, & Matt

Day 32 of “45 Days in Old North”

This week we bid farewell to our fearless and determined interns, Amanda Goldsmith and Matt Fernandez from St. Louis University, and Brian Backscheider from Washington University. All three have exhibited a great deal of flexibililty in tackling almost any task we assigned them while having to fight for desk space and time on the extra computer. Over the past few months, we have asked our interns to gather information from public and university libraries, make trips to City Hall and other city agencies, produce maps, research funding sources, prepare and distribute press releases, deliver house tour posters all over town, and embark on countless other adventures related to the Mullanphy Emigrant Home.

On May 18, Brian will graduate with a degree in engineering, and on May 19, Matt will graduate with a degree in urban affairs and Amanda will graduate with a masters in public administration and a law degree. Matt will continue at SLU in the fall, this time as a graduate student, and may return to us for a summer internship, while Amanda will begin her career with a local law firm, and Brian will return to his native Ohio to pursue a graduate degree in urban planning. Congratulations and thank you to Brian, Amanda, and Matt!
