Evans Internship Award gives Taylor Hanigosky ’16 chance to report from Africa


Her original plan was to spend a few weeks in Ghana as part of a Marietta College-sponsored service trip and then return home for the summer.

However, the more Taylor Hanigosky ’16 (Youngstown, Ohio) looked at the opportunities that were available in Ghana, the more she realized there might be an internship possibility with one of two of that country’s national newspapers — Daily Guide and Daily Graphic. After convincing her parents — James and Jennifer — that spending the entire summer in Ghana was a good idea, she quickly jumped at the opportunity.

Just when it looked like her summer plans could not get any better, Hanigosky received more good news: she is the 2014 recipient of the Robert Evans Internship Endowment Award.

Students develop bond, gain appreciation while mentoring autistic youngsters

Trying to crack through the maze of an autistic mind is no easy task. Doctors and scientists have been working on this for years with some success, but no one has truly cracked the code.

Pat Tegge ’14 (Glenshaw, Pa.), along with four other Marietta College peer mentors, may not have any concrete answers but they did learn first-hand this fall what it was like to interact and teach students with autism as peer mentors in the Social Skills and Transition program.
