In partnership with the Stuckert Career Center, the Gatton College of Business and Economics has recognized the outstanding accomplishments of student interns during the 2020-2021 academic year.
To be considered, the employer was required to submit a nomination letter on behalf of the intern. The winners were selected based on their contributions to the organization, meaningful work that impacted the organization, how the student exceeded expectations, and how they grew from the beginning of their internship to the end.
In addition to their outstanding interns, the Gatton College also recognized contributions from employer partners for supporting students during a challenging year. BrainBox Intelligent Marketing, a Lexington-based experiential and digital marketing firm, was named UK Employer of the Year based on its deep commitment to UK students through internships, mentoring, resume review events, mock interviews, and panel discussions. Scott Bridegam and Camile Turner accepted the award on behalf of the company.
