The Smith Schools Net Impact chapter has named three second-year MBA students as its 2002 Internship Fund Award winners. They are Greg Deviny, Katherine Ollinger, and Talicia Safford. Each receives a financial stipend for interning at a non-profit or socially responsible organization this past summer. Net Impact created the Internship Fund in 2001 because such internships often pay considerably less than other summer internships.
It was raining when we left College Park on Friday; it rained all the way to New Haven that night. We did not expect the tournament to be played the next day. We got up at 7a.m. on Saturday [October 12, 2002]; it was still raining, but we headed to the fields, not sure that we were going to play at all that day. Once there, we learned that the tournament was still going to be played in the rain and mud. Fifteen other schools had come from all over the country to play this tournament, so it could not be suspended.
Sakisha Jackson and Carolina Lasso are just two Smith School undergraduates who hope to be the business leaders of tomorrow.
