The City of Jasper Welcomes Two Awesome Summer Interns

The City of Jasper has hired two new interns for the summer of 2017 to help carry out the organization’s goals in the coming months.

The Community Development and Planning department welcomes Libby Gress as their 2017 summer intern.

Under the supervision of Director Darla Blazey, Libby will contribute to the creation of an online interactive map of Jasper highlighting the city’s top economic and community development projects. She will prepare reports of Jasper’s demographic and economic development information. Libby will also aid in creating new permit and application packets, taking minutes and attendance at meetings, updating the City’s website, and other work for the Community Development and Planning department.

The Jasper Arts department welcomes Morgan Kissel, a Jasper native, as their 2017 summer intern. Morgan will be a junior this coming fall at Indiana University Purdue University in Indianapolis (IUPUI) where she will continue her studies in photography and design production. As the Arts department intern, her responsibilities include aiding facilitation of the Chalk Walk (June 3) and “ARTventures”, periodic workshops for children to sign up and learn advanced art skills. Morgan will help the Arts department create content for their social media profiles including Facebook and Instagram. She will also design the 2017-2018 gallery schedule brochure among other work for the Arts department.

City of Jasper Mayor Terry Seitz said of the internship process, “The City of Jasper values the insight and talent of the intern process and we are delighted to help in the education of each intern employed by the City of Jasper.”
