Thank you to our Summer Interns
Congratulations to our two Austin College interns, Savanah Low and Toria Flores, who have finished their work at THF and moved on to exciting opportunities. Savanah has already started studying abroad in Mexico, and Toria has accepted a job with Taps Transportation.
Savanah led THF’s efforts in mental health data collection and analysis leading up to, and following the MIND conference. Toria assisted with THF’s breast cancer project and grants development. They will both be greatly missed by staff and volunteers!
Thank you to Austin College for supporting THF’s mission through our partnership together.
