Work Study Program
For the past several years, students from the Marietta College Department of Communications have completed internships at the RC&D office. T.J. Knowlton, an MC senior and captain of the college’s baseball team, completed an internship with us in the fall of 2009. Over the past years, more than a dozen MC students have worked with the Council. This partnership has become a “win win” situation for us, for the students, and for Marietta College.
