Celebrating successful education internships
Lindsey Interns for the 2018-19 academic year

Students named as Lindsey Interns for the 2018-19 academic year were recently celebrated at a special reception with Mr. Paul Lindsey. Paul’s dedication to serving the Tucson community through our college internship program has not wavered through the more-than-ten year program. His support has allowed more than 70 community agencies, some for multiple years, to work with our interns. The needs that are met by our interns in the community vary widely. Some interns create curriculum in museums. Others might focus on public outreach, education technology, or building Social Emotional Learning practices in a school community.

The role of the internship also depends upon whether the student is undergraduate or graduate level.

This year, we had the following undergraduate Lindsey interns: Thea Van Gorp, Joseph Sturm, Daffne Valdivia, Rena Mendoza, Lacey Nehls, Amanda Robertson, and Leehey Ramon. And these were the six graduate Lindsey interns: LaToya Hinton, Jenna Hollander, Sarah Robison, Irma Sarmiento, Kelly Smith, and Garrison Tsinajinie.
