PWSC and the Crooked Creek Information Site partner to provide internship to student

Emily Humphrey, who recently graduated with an Associate of Arts from PWSC, will be pursuing a teaching degree at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. When she heard about an internship opportunity through PWSC and the Chugach National Forest - Crooked Creek Information Site (CCIS), she knew she wanted to participate. Emily recently shared her excitement about spending part of her summer as an intern at CCIS. “When I found out about this opportunity, I knew I wanted to do it. I think places like CCIS are a great benefit to the community to help people learn about the world around them. It has also been a great benefit to me because I am learning about things I hadn't previously known.” This internship also has the added benefit of helping Emily develop her teaching skills. She said, “I see this internship as a great opportunity to gain more experience providing education to youth and the general public.”

The internship program that Emily is a part of is a collaboration between PWSC and CCIS. CCIS is owned and managed by the USDA Forest Service through the Cordova Ranger District.
