Farewell (for now) to Two Terrific Interns

This week we at HSP have had the bittersweet duty to bid a fond farewell to more members of our wonderful intern team. Over the past two days we have said goodbye to our interns Christine and Sara. We wish to take this opportunity to recognize them for all they have done to help HSP better serve the neediest members of our communities.

The first intern to finish up her internship this week was Christine Petrowich. Christine joined the HSP team a few months ago for a school requirement, and graciously stayed on as a full fledged intern. Christine primarily lent her support to HSP through her writing talents, writing “updates” about the needy seniors in our program, and writing articles and social media posts about current happenings at HSP. Christine will soon be graduating from Elmhurst College, and plans on volunteering with us when summer begins. We at HSP are very happy that the end of her internship is not so much a “goodbye” but rather just a “see you later.”

Today, we also had to say goodbye to one of our longest serving interns ever, Sara Kozlowski. Since starting at HSP in mid-September, Sara has had a hand in the success of a majority of HSP’s projects. Regularly Sara has gone the extra mile for the sake of the needy seniors, children, and families we serve. In fact, just a week and half ago Sara went the extra “3 miles” representing HSP in the DuPage Human Race 5k. Sara has become a fixture in the HSP office, and everyone at the HSP Center is sad to see her go, but look forward to keeping in touch with her as she moves on to new adventures.

HSP is extremely grateful for the heartfelt support Christine, Sara, and all the other members of our intern team. We wish them the best as they enter new, exciting chapters in there lives.
