HSP Welcomes Two New Interns

This week, we at HSP have had the pleasure of welcoming two new members of our intern team. These two interns, Bridget and Chase, will be spending time over the next few months learning new skills as they work with us to serve the needy seniors, children, and families in our programs.

Our “new” General Intern is Bridget Everson. We say “new” because Bridget has been regularly volunteering at HSP for the past couple months, and is now officially joining us as an intern. Bridget will be heading off to college this fall at the University of Missouri where she intends to double major in International Business and Political Science. She says that in the future she is interested in working for a non-profit, and is excited to learn more about the non-profit world through her internship at HSP. Bridget started volunteering with us to earn community service hours for National Honors Society, and says her volunteering inspired her to become an intern here. During her time here Bridget will be assisting HSP staff members on several projects, including communicating with the families enrolled in our Children’s Birthday Project. In addition to her work in service, Bridget is a member of Model UN and is an avid golfer.

            The other new intern we have welcomed this week is Chase Miller, our Accounting Intern. Chase will be working alongside HSP’s co-founder and CFO Floyd Kettering, who will be showing Chase the ropes of non-profit accounting. Chase currently attends College of DuPage from which he will move on to get his Accounting degree at Northwestern. Chase said he is also interested in working for a non-profit once he finishes school, and is looking forward to the experiences that he will have here at HSP. Chase says his interest for serving others was instilled in him as young man through Boy Scouts. Outside of his service and academic interests, Chase enjoys reading and fitness.

            HSP is very happy to have both Bridget and Chase join the other bright members of our intern team. Please join us in welcoming them to HSP.
