Texas BPA Interns - Thank you to everyone who participated in the Texas Intern program. Thank you to Sharon Booth and Head Managing Interns Cody Mazzurana and Emilie Weber for getting our Texas Interns where we needed them this year. We show that while we had many students sign up to volunteer as interns, we had 272 interns complete the program and serve approximately 865 service hours during the conference. Thank you to Justin Hellmann and his Media Team of Riley Jaskinia, Luke Roswell, Colton Swize and Kendyl Jaskinia for organizing our Photorama and our Recap video. Thank you to everyone who contributed their photos and videos to the team this year. We look forward to expanding our Texas Intern opportunities next year.
