Mikaela Ward, intern

I am a Marketing intern for the Newville Economic Development Authority, and I am going to help promote Newville as a whole. I will show the beauties of Newville and everything it has to offer for new businesses!

I want to major in Marketing in college and I think this is a great way to help my community and learn useful skills for my future career. 

I love running and playing sports. I also love traveling and going to the beach. In school, I am in many clubs including Club CARE, Mini-THON, Class Officers, Quill and Scroll, bocce club, and NHS. Outside of school, I use my time to help my church’s youth group with community service projects. 

Family- Michael Ward (dad), Christina Ward (mom), Matthew Ward (brother) who attends Swarthmore College right outside of Philadelphia, and a puppy boxer named Zoey.

I hope to either attend the University of Kentucky or the University of Tennessee to major in Marketing and minor in Electronic Communications. 

Fun fact about me: I am 50% Greek and my grandmother moved from Greece when she was 5, but I have never been to Greece!
