Mayor Hendricks remarked, “We are excited to welcome this incredible group of young leaders as our Summer in the City interns. We know they’ll learn a great deal about our community while contributing with great ideas and positive energy.”

The Summer in the City Program was launched in 2007. This is the third year that the program has been expanded to include internship collaborations with the Fire Department and the first year to include internship collaborations with the Police Department. Since its commencement, 51 other Christian County youth have served as city interns, receiving valuable workplace readiness and other skills along with the opportunity to see various facets of municipal government at work.
