Coast Guard, Elizabeth City State University kick off internship program

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – The joint commands of Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City are pleased to announce a new internship initiative with Elizabeth City State University. Three ECSU students have been chosen to work at the Coast Guard Aircraft Repair and Supply Center in Elizabeth City this summer. Student interns will start June 3, 2008, and continue for nine weeks ending August 1, 2008.

ECSU is using a U.S. Department of Education grant called Title III, Part B, also known as the Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program, to fund three students who will participate in the new internship program at the Coast Guard base this summer. It includes a stipend for the students’ housing, food and transportation. The grant was originally authorized by the Higher Education Act of 1965, and is designed to provide financial assistance to institutions officially designated as Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Lakeisha Moore, an Industrial Technology major with an emphasis in Computer Networking, will serve as an Information Systems intern and report to Mr. Brason Twiford, Systems Branch Chief in the Information Systems Division (ISD) of ARSC. Moore will load Windows XP operating systems and other specialized software applications onto desktop computers.

Weeks-Jamieson will be working in the ARSC Master Technical Library during the course of this project. The Library – a branch of the ESD, is required to electronically archive thousands of engineering records, publications, and documents. Archival data for this project is currently in paper media. These records are to be cataloged, reviewed, electronically scanned, and book-marked. Digital copies of records must be verified against original paper records. Paper records will be recycled after content has been captured into electronic media and results verified for accuracy.

Julian Exum, an Accounting/Business Administration major with a concentration in Management Information Systems will work as an Accounting Intern in the Aviation Logistics Division and report to Deborah McCarty, the Branch Chief of the Fiscal Operations Cell.
