Southern Indiana residents may notice a familiar face the next time they attend an event hosted by the Clarksville Parks. Megan Striegel of Floyds Knobs, Indiana has been selected as the 2017 Summer Intern for the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department.
Megan graduated from Floyd Central High School, and was a member of the Floyd Central Golf Team for 4 years. She is currently attending Clemson University and pursuing a degree in Graphic Communications. Megan is already performing well in her first year, earning a spot in Alpha Lambda Delta, a certified national honor society that recognizes academic excellence in the first year of college.
The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department first began offering an internship program back in 2014. Each year, the department selects one student from applicants from across the country, to work with the department during the summer months. Since Clarksville Parks is a small department, our interns get in-depth training in event management, recreational program development, golf and aquatics operations, budgeting, marketing, and communications. Unlike many internships, this position is paid, making it very competitive.
Megan will begin her duties with Clarksville Parks beginning May 15 and run through early August. Since Megan is pursuing a degree in Graphic Communications, she will be working closely with Communication Director Ken Conklin on marketing, graphic design, website development, ad design, media communications, and public relations. Megan will also spend time learning about operations within the Parks Department, Wooded View Golf Course, and the new Clarksville Cove Family Aquatic Center.
The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department is proud to welcome Megan Striegel to the team, and looks forward to her great work for our community. Anyone interested in learning more about the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Internship program can visit our website at ClarksvilleParks.com.
