RBC Student Thriving With Local Chamber of Commerce
Richard Bland College of William & Mary sophomore TeeAnn Allison is serving as an intern with Hopewell/Prince George Chamber of Commerce for the spring semester.
“RBC is excited to partner with the Hopewell/Prince George Chamber of Commerce to assist in finding interns for its members,” says RBC Provost Maria E. Dezenberg. “This experience will not only benefit RBC students by giving them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, but it will benefit the Hopewell/Prince George area as a whole, encouraging students to become invested in these communities and local employers.”
Allison, a native of Prince George, will be working on multiple social media projects, featuring a career awareness video project with schools and local employers. She will also work on tourism promotion for the area. “TeeAnn is exactly what we needed. She brings fresh ideas and new perspective to the team as well as a good work ethic and plenty of skills,” according to Daniel Jones, Communication Coordinator for the Chamber.
In addition to being a full-time student, Allison works at the Fort Lee dry cleaners. She is active in volunteer work, which includes the Colonial Heights Animal Shelter, the Fort Lee Thrift Shop, and in campus activities. She serves on the research and development committee on student assembly.
“At the chamber I will be getting experience in a project off campus that could benefit college students’ leisure activities,” Allison says.
