Meet Patrick

May 21st, 2015
Hello everyone!  My name is Patrick and I am incredibly excited to be interning here at Franklin Community Center over the summer.  I am a Human Services Major at Cazenovia College with a minor in Sociology and will be going into my junior year this fall.  I really enjoy college; I find that I’m learning a lot of things and making some good friends with both my fellow students and some of my professors.  I’ve also gotten the chance to take some really interesting courses both related and unrelated to my major.
As I said, I’m super excited to be working here for the summer.  I’ve done volunteer work with Franklin Community Center in the past, and really enjoy helping out here.  The work that is done here has a tremendous importance to our community and really helps to make it a better place.  I’m glad that I’m now a part of that work and happy in knowing that my work here really makes a difference.  At the time I am writing this, I’m helping Jaime get everything ready for the 17th Annual Franklin Open Benefit Golf Tournament. I’m enjoying what I’ve done so far and am hoping to help with a lot more things once this is finished.  Overall, I’m looking forward to learning from this internship and doing my best to be a great intern.
