Campus Pride announced today that Prin will be joining the 2015 Campus Pride Summer Fellows. The positions were created three years ago for recent college graduates and graduate students to become part of the summer staffing and learn more hands-on about the organization. We are proud to welcome Prin from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. Prin will begin their fellowship in mid-July and complete it in mid-August and will have free housing along with a monthly stipend. They are joining fellows Allison Marie Turner and Tyler Eilts. Campus Pride appreciates all the applications for this year Summer Fellow positions.
“Every year we have more and more amazing young adults apply for the Summer Fellowship program and it gets more difficult to choose,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride. “I am excited that our organization is growing and that Prin will be part of our staff team in our office throughout July and August.”
