Birmingham-Southern students selected as summer environmental interns

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College has awarded five students paid environmental internships for this summer. The internships, a precursor to the new urban environmental studies major to begin at BSC this fall, include three full-time and two part-time positions with local environmental agencies and will provide substantive work beneficial to the students' educational experience. Interested students applied for the internships and the recipients were selected by BSC faculty and staff.

The internships are funded by a two-year vision grant from the 3M Corporation and a private donor. This year's summer environmental interns include:

Mark Adams, a sophomore from Vestavia, will work with Alabama River Alliance.

Lacey Genard, a sophomore from Valley Grande, will work with Five Mile Creek Greenway Project.

David Hilgeman, a junior from Memphis, Tenn., will work with Ruffner Mountain Nature Center.

Sam Wilson, a freshman from Homewood, will work with Cahaba River Society.

Charles Yeager, a junior from Irondale, will work with Freshwater Land Trust.
