Cayden Pohlman is an incoming sophomore at Ball State University where he is majoring in finance at the Miller College of Business. “Ripley County has given me more than I could ever ask for. The Foundation was the perfect opportunity for me to give back to my community.” Cayden will be working in the finance department building his knowledge of investments and management.
Abe Streator is an incoming sophomore at Indiana University. He is currently pursuing a degree in History. When asked why he chose the Foundation, Abe stated, “As a lifelong resident of Ripley County, I wanted to be able to make an impact in the county I call home. The Ripley County Community Foundation provides me with a wonderful opportunity to pay my gratitude forward.” Abe will be introduced to grant and program management as he works on Turnover Hunger and Ripley Youth Outreach initiatives.
“The Community Foundation is truly grateful for the ability to provide students with the opportunity to be involved in their community,” stated Amy Streator, Executive Director. Streator continued, “By providing our interns with philanthropic experience, we are able to teach them the power of a community. We aspire to cultivate life-long philanthropists, and to create future leaders in our community.”
