Lilly Intern Spotlight – Katie
Katie is one of six interns this fall with the Leadership Initiative Grant through the Lilly Foundation, which UCM received in 2015. She is a sophomore and pre-nursing major. She came to the U of A from Carrollton,Texas, where she was active in the Nor’Kirk Congregation, as well as youth opportunities in Grace Presbytery.
Her internship is focused on recruitment on both the U of A Campus and within Grace Presbytery. She serves as a liaison between UCM and the University at campus wide events. She is working with Gary Holloman, director of Youth and Young Adults in Grace Presbytery, to reach out to High School students by attending their Senior High Conference as a representative of UCM.
A second initiative in her internship is reaching out to freshmen and sophomore women to connect them with the UCM community and support them in the first two years of their college experience. This is setting the foundation for future small group ministry.
