Salute to Summer 2021 Justine PETERSEN Interns
JP’s “Fab Five” summer intern cohort has returned to fall semester studies after completing a banner summer of myriad projects and duties. Our summer cohort was the largest in JP’s history, and their yield was accordingly historic. Despite the constraints of Covid-impacted social distancing and hybrid work schedules, our interns were present in the daily life and operations of our office, and we feel their absence. A most sincere THANK YOU to Mary Webb, Henry Bloch, Matt Hingle, Charles O’Gorman and Charles Ivie! And best wishes for a fulfilling school year.
