June 19th, 2012 by 

NAME Katharine Shapleigh ’13

HOMETOWN St. Louis

AREAS OF STUDY Studies in world literature major with Peace and Conflict Studies concentration

WHERE SHE’S INTERNING Tuesday’s Children, a non-profit family service organization committed to supporting all those impacted by the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and, more recently, to those impacted by terrorist incidents worldwide. Shapleigh will intern as part of the marketing and public relations team, assisting with tasks such as researching and assessing marketing initiatives as well as assembling press kits and press releases.

INTERNSHIP DURATION May 29 – August 3

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Learning as much as possible about non-profit development and administration, as well as meeting families that participate in activities and services offered by Tuesday’s Children.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Reading past Summer Internship Program blogs inspired me to apply to an internship in New York City and assured me of the quality educational experience provided by SIP sites. I’d love to share my experiences with other students, and I am looking forward to writing about both my internship at Tuesday’s Children and the Big Apple I have all summer to explore!”

CAREER GOAL “To work where I can continue to learn, challenge myself, and best serve others.”

ABOUT SIP Internships through the College’s Summer Internship Program are developed through the strong network of Holy Cross alumni, parents, and friends throughout the country and are earmarked and designed specifically for Holy Cross students. This year 150 students have internships at 146 sites offered through the program.
