Dave’s English 4050 class completes community internships

In Spring 2017, the students of ENGL 4050, Writing and Civic Engagement, taught by Dr. Anish Dave, assistant professor of English, worked on part-time unpaid internships with community organizations.

Zachary Price worked as an unpaid intern for Americus Times Recorder. In her evaluation of Zachary’s work, Beth Alston, the editor and publisher of the newspaper, described Zachary’s work as follows: “He wrote several feature stories as well as some government stories for publication.” Zachary Price’s news stories include the following: “February’s First Friday offered special ‘kick’” (published February 16, 2017), “Local business reaps benefits from city’s facade grant” (published March 13, 2017), “Local couple celebrates 70th anniversary” (published April 3, 2017), “Spoken word poet headlines GSW Bell Convocation” (published April 19, 2017), “GSW hosts National History Day” (published April 27, 2017), and the like. Zachary has been asked to write columns for the newspaper on veteran affairs, in part because he is a former veteran himself.

Taylor Fisher, Neferteria McCaskill, and Brandon Mable worked as unpaid, part-time interns with Americus Main Street organization. All three were guided and supervised by Mr. Patrick Kay, Main Street/DDA Director. The three students worked on documents such as press releases, user guides, newsletter, and so on. The students attended meetings, contributed to events, and interviewed citizens of the city, including businesses. Mr. Kay was so impressed with the performance of Taylor Fisher that he is asking his supervisor to start a “paid summer internship program.”

Erica Faircloth worked as an unpaid, part-time intern for the city-based Koinonia Farm. Having been previously acquainted with the organization, Erica enjoyed her time working for the organization. She helped with improving documents, creating brochures, and so on.

Dr. Dave would like to thank Ms. Angela Smith, executive assistant to the president, and Mr. Josh Curtin, director of Campus Life, for setting up two of the internships. He would also like to thank the participating organizations and their personnel for their kindness, as well as the students for their hard work and dedication.
