“Working with an intern has been extremely advantageous for us here in the electrical shop.” Facilities Management, Electrical Department.
“NKU’s Project SEARCH has had an overwhelmingly positive impact at BB&T Arena. I feel that we as the managers have been the true interns during this process. We’ve grown so much with just the eagerness and positivity that both Alicia and Miles bring in the building each and every morning. As managers, we’ve been able to expand our attention-to-detail, specifically with projects, training skills and overall team positivity. It has definitely been a team effort and we are grateful that we were selected to be part of such a life enhancing experience for Alicia and Miles. We are definitely stronger because of Project Search and I couldn’t be more proud.” Tammy Fryman, HR Manager/Executive Assistant, BB&T Arena
“Our department learned so much from our intern. She was always a smiling face! She gave us a new perspective on ourselves as well as the work that we do here at NKU.” Lauren Franzen, Director of HR Management Services, Human Resources Department
“Working with Project SEARCH interns this academic year has been an extremely positive experience for our department. Watching our students grow in their mentorship and leadership abilities working alongside the interns has been as rewarding as watching the interns develop themselves. Each intern has demonstrated improvements in experience and abilities, making them better prepared for employment and showing the positive results this program offers. We look forward to hosting more interns next year.” Patrick McGrath, Associate Director for Facilities, Department of Campus Recreation
“Collaborating with Project SEARCH and having an interns work in our department this semester has been a great experience for our faculty and staff.
