10th Class of Summer in the City Interns Graduate

Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks joined dozens of family members, city staff, and friends in celebrating the graduation of the tenth class of the Summer in the City Internship Program. 

Members of the 2016 class included:

  • Brittany Dragoo, CCHS Class of 2017
  • Alexi McGhan, CCHS Class of 2016
  • Jayla Motley, CCHS Class of 2016
  • Davis Pyle, HHS Class of 2016
  • RaAnna Tucker, UHA Class of 2017

For three weeks this month, interns undertook various projects, developed computer and workplace skills, networked, and got a close up look at how city government works.  After successful completion of the program, they also earned a $500 stipend and letter of recommendation. 

Mayor Hendricks remarked, “We were especially excited to expand the program this year to include two interns at Hopkinsville Fire Department in addition to the four who served from City Hall.”  He added, “I continue to be impressed by the character and leadership of the young people of Hopkinsville and Christian County.”

The Summer in the City Internship Program was launched in 2007.  Since its inception, 45 Christian County youth have served as city interns, receiving valuable workplace readiness and other skills along with the opportunity to see different facets of city government at work.
