A Sad Goodbye to Ashlee

            Today, all of us here at HSP had to say our goodbyes to one of our interns, Ashlee. She has done an incredible amount of work in the two months that she’s been with us, and she will be greatly missed. HSP won’t be the same without her upbeat attitude, strong work ethic, and funny stories.
            Ashlee started at HSP in May as part of the internship program at Radford University in Virgina, where she is majoring in public relations. She was
able to put her PR skills to good use here, as she contributed to numerous different projects. Ashlee spent much of her time reaching out to the community about our School Supply Drive and designing/redesigning several flyers for various HSP programs. She also assisted with our senior update process, in which she interviewed seniors to increase our knowledge about their current living situations and needs, and then recorded this information in a narrative to send to their sponsors. Ashlee was always kept busy but gave each task her all. Everything she accomplished was done so with hard work and creativity.
            This Sunday, Ashlee will be heading back home to Virginia and will start school a few weeks later. We wish her the best of luck as she enters her last year of college, although we know that she will succeed in all she does. Thank you, Ashlee!
