This week, HSP was excited to welcome two new interns, Anna Lapso and Erik Maranto, to our summer intern team. Anna has taken on the role of our Grant Writing intern, and will be helping HSP seek out grant funding for our programs to serve those in need throughout DuPage and Kane counties. Anna is an English major at Elmhurst College. She is extremely passionate about writing, and is excited to have found an internship that will allow her to apply and develop her skills while also serving others. Anna is very interested in our programs here at HSP, especially those affecting children. Anna’s interests include recreational writing and reading. Erik, who has joined the team as HSP’s Project Management intern, will be helping us reach out to members of the community and service groups, educating them about HSP, and establishing relationships with them. Erik also attends Elmhurst College, where he majors in Business Administration, with a minor in Organizational Communication. After graduating, Erik plans on starting his career, and he would like to be an active alum for Elmhurst College and his fraternity. He was attracted to HSP because the community was very inviting, and because of the amazing work they do to help those in need. His biggest hope for this internship is to plan a successful event while expanding his skill set. Erik’s other interests include fishing and spending quality time with his family and friends. Please help us give these two a nice warm welcome!
