John Carroll University students have earned three of the five finalist spots for an award honoring the best intern in Northeast Ohio:

  • Lauren Halladay ’12, ’14G, a nonprofit administration graduate student, interned with the Center for Families and Children in Cleveland.
  • Allison Schulze ’13, an English literature major and business minor, interned with the Cleveland Play House.
  • Jessica Wagner ’14, a sociology and criminology major and entrepreneurship minor, interned with LaunchHouse, a seed capital and angel investment fund in Shaker Heights.

The students received nominations in the “best intern” category of The Expys, awarded annually by the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education and Cleveland Business Connects magazine. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on March 20.

“We are proud not only of our Expy Award finalists, but also of the hundreds of other JCU students who serve the region each year through challenging internships, research, and service opportunities,” said Jeanne M. Colleran ’76, dean of John Carroll University’s College of Arts and Sciences. “We also are grateful for the support of area businesses, healthcare organizations, nonprofits, and other partners—many of which are owned or run by JCU alumni—that provide our students with meaningful professional experience and a springboard to their careers.”
