Do it Best Awards Scholarship to Summer Internship Participant

On Friday, July 29, Do it Best concluded its 2023 Level Up Summer Internship Program by awarding a $1,000 scholarship to program participant and Taylor University student Grace Lee.

The Level Up Summer Internship Program provides students with opportunities to explore career interests, gain hands-on experience and develop interpersonal skills. This year, there were seven participating students. Each student was partnered with a dedicated supervisor and a cross-divisional mentor. These student-supervisor-mentor teams collaborated on weekly projects, attended professional development and social networking events, engaged in regular discussions and volunteered in their community.

“This program represents our commitment to nurturing the next generation of leaders by providing them with the tools they need to succeed,” says Do it Best director of human resources Celeste Stevens. “We empower our interns to embrace real-world challenges, collaborate with experienced professionals and make meaningful impacts on the organizations they serve.”

The highlight of the Level Up Summer Internship Program is the Capstone Presentation Project. This project requires each of the seven participating students to present their professional insights, growth and accomplishments to Do it Best executive leadership team members, divisional directors and other employees. Each presentation was evaluated on coherence and organization, content and visuals and overall delivery, and the winner was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

“Grace’s performance, innovation and leadership is an inspiring example for others,” says Stevens. “We congratulate Grace and commend all our interns for their hard work and enthusiasm during the Level Up Summer Internship Program.”
