GGC students benefit from internships with various regional and national organizations. Two students recently made college history.
Jose Gutierrez, class of ’15, of Lilburn was named to the White House Internship Program as a participant for the Spring 2015 session. He is the first GGC student chosen for this prestigious program. He majored in psychology with a concentration in social and neuropsychology. Gutierrez plans to use his White House internship experiences to enhance his leadership skills so he can work toward improving his community.
Erika Dillingham, class of ’15, of Lawrenceville is the first GGC student to have been selected for an internship with The Carter Center’s Global Access to Information program. She enrolled at GGC at age 36 and earned a double major in English and political science. She plans to work in non-profit or private sector business development and looks toward an eventual PhD in international affairs and public policy. She currently serves as an intern with Art and Volunteer Services at The Carter Center.
