The Intern Perspective

As my time here at GC comes to a close, I’ve decided to take a small moment to reflect back. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Katie McCombie and I’ve been working as a Marketing Intern at Generations Crossing since October. As a current JMU student studying Public Relations, I thought this would be excellent work experience for me. I was eager to get some hands-on, “real world” job training and join the GC team. I had no idea it would end up offering me so much more than that.

Small Moments with Big Impact

It’s no secret we’re always bustling at GC, with new activities planned daily for participants from age 6 weeks to 95 years old. However sometimes we hear a story about our program that stops us in our tracks, putting everything in perspective. We recently spoke to Miriam, a mother of one of our adult participants named Catherine. Catherine has a condition which limits her ability to communicate. Miriam told us a heartwarming story of how GC has impacted Catherine’s life, even outside of the center walls.
