Stephany Fox, a senior business administration major at Colorado State University, was honored in August by a national nonprofit organization.
The organization INROADS named Fox its Denver Intern of the Year for 2015. The award honors graduating seniors who have demonstrated academic excellence, consistently exceeded expectations during their internship and showed commitment to the INROADS development process.
INROADS works with promising, underserved college students and helps prepare them for careers in the business industry. Fox has spent three summers as an INROADS intern with CH2M, an engineering company that provides consulting, design, construction and operations services for governments. Fox thanked INROADS for the experience and knowledge it was able to give her the last three years.
“This program helps with business development because they know what to expect in business careers,” she says. “INROADS helps you stand out amongst others and learn about internships.”
Under the watchful eye of her CH2M supervisors, and the officials at INROADS, Fox was selected based on her participation and performance in the internship.
“CSU has a very positive relationship with INROADS, who hosts hiring mixers and attends career events regularly on campus,” said Jeremy Podany, Career Center director at CSU. “They do a great job of mentoring and providing career connections for underserved college students. Each year approximately 10-20 CSU students join their program and grow in career readiness. We are quite glad to see Stephany receive this award; it is a true testimony to her character and hard-work, and to the way the CSU community and INROADS have helped her grow.”
Fox is from Aurora, Colo., and will graduate with a degree in business administration from CSU in December.
