County hires college intern for environmental office

An Arnold college student is getting hands-on experience as an intern with the environmental division of the Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning.

Jennifer Gillis, a senior majoring in geography at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, has been assigned to the county's Watershed Management Program.

She has an associate's degree from Anne Arundel Community College and has completed courses in hydrology, natural resources, Chesapeake Bay studies and geographic information systems. Ms. Gillis is the managing editor of the UMBC Geography Council of Majors newsletter.

At the environmental division, Ms. Gillis' responsibilities include data entry and analyzing Rock Creek field data. She also will be helping with Geographic Information Systems work for the Patuxent Demonstration Project.

Internships are unpaid positions that give college students a chance to earn academic credit and gain work experience. The additional temporary staff also is helpful to the county because of budget reductions.

Internships throughout county government are available to qualified college students. For information, applicants should contact the Office of Public Information at 222-1288.
