My Amazing Internship

Gaither1

On March 28, the Amazing Internship series wrapped up the 2011-12 academic year with a report from Ellie Gaither on her internship with the local Women's Resource Center Cornerstone Children's Program.  The Cornerstone program provides transitional housing and general support for victims of domestic violence.  Focusing her career on advocating for children, Gaither said she hopes she had as big an impact on the children she worked with as they had on her.
