Our Summer Interns
We hired two new interns! Ellen Lundgren is a a 4th-year student at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, studying Art & Design, with an emphasis in Visual Studies. She is also the president of Grand Valley Secular Alliance (previously CFI - Grand Valley).
Dave Muscato is a 3rd year student at the University of Missouri-Columbia, majoring in economics and anthropology and getting minors in classical Latin and philosophy. Dave is also the vice president of the University of Missouri Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists, & Agnostics (SASHA) and blogs for several websites including Skepticfreethought and Harvardhumanist.
Together, Ellen and Dave will be revising the Group Running Guide. We sent out over 350 guides last year, and we're looking forward to improving it so we can continue to offer high quality advice to our student leaders.
