Nash County welcomes college summer interns

A Nashville native is spending part of his summer at home, serving as an intern for Nash County.

Joseph Brake, a rising junior at Fayetteville State University, will work through mid-July in various departments of the county.

Brake is joining Zaniya Caine, a rising senior at NC Central University and Battleboro resident and Cathy Nicholson, a rising sophomore at UNC-Greensboro from Wilson.

Patsy McGhee, Assistant to the Nash County Manager, told commissioners last Monday that Golden LEAF and the Center for Creative Leadership had been contacted in April about the county hosting interns. The Center for Creative Leadership responded that they have many scholars who were having trouble finding internships due to COVID-19.

All three interns are scheduled to work 240 hours in June and July and slated to complete their internships in mid-July. They will assist the three departments that requested them: Administration (in the areas of Grants, Housing, and Intergovernmental Relations); Veteran Services; and Recreation.

Brake told commissioners he was thankful to be able to return home to help during the summer months.

"It is a struggle trying to find an internship during this pandemic," Brake said.

McGhee said all three have done great work.

"Their supervisor report they are all doing great work," she said.

Commissioner Chair Robbie Davis welcomed all three to the county and encouraged them to consider Nash County for employment in the future.

"We're glad to have each one of ya'll here," he said. "I hope you do receive some benefit from it also."
