2018 Summer Intern Meet and Greet
On June 6, 2018, MCEDA hosted interns and co-ops from Ascend Performance Materials, Daikin, GE Appliances, Hexcel, Nucor, Premier System Integrators, and United Launch Alliance at Mellow Mushroom. This annual networking event allows students visiting Decatur-Morgan County an opportunity to meet other students working here this summer. Our office provides them with information about summer events and attractions, local restaurants and specials, MoCo Meetup, and the Decatur Jaycees. We also share with them about The Best and Brightest Initiative, which is program designed to recruit STEM young professionals. Decatur is the first in the country to offer a comprehensive incentive package recruiting STEM graduates that includes student loan repayment up to $3,000 per year for up to 5 years ($15,000 maximum), ongoing mentorship, career networking and opportunities, and the ability to influence events in our city.
