Two Golden Bulls chosen for NC Governor’s HBCU internship program

JCSU’s Brianna Glymph ’19 and Braxton Gambrell ’20 were among the 50 students from across North Carolina chosen to participate in the N.C. Governor’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship Program.

“This program is absolutely crucial in helping to link talented students from our state’s historically African American institutions with Fortune 500 corporations through internships,” said UNC System President Margaret Spellings. “I congratulate all of the interns who were selected and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”

Students kicked off the program with an orientation at N.C. Central University in Durham. The program’s purpose is to connect students who attend the state’s HBCUs with the state’s Fortune 500 companies. The internships also provide participating institutions with the opportunity to develop long-term partnerships with critical industry allies. The interns benefit from the work experience while businesses benefit from accessing an untapped, diverse talent pool.

Glymph is working with GMS Estimators June 1-July 31, 2018, while Gambrell interns at Wells Fargo.

“I’m so excited to represent not only JCSU but all HBCUs in this program,” Glymph said. “I’ll be soaking up as much knowledge as I can while gaining real-world experience toward my goal of becoming a public relations specialist. It’s an incredible opportunity.”

Other students in the program attend Bennett College, Saint Augustine’s University, NCCU, N.C. A&T State University, Livingstone College, Shaw University, Fayetteville State University, Elizabeth City State University and Winston-Salem State University.
