 Clarke County Conservation Easement Authority
Summer Internship

The Clarke County Conservation Easement Authority (CEA), which protects and preserves land with significant agricultural, natural, scenic, and historic resources, has two internship positions this summer (May to September). Stipend is $1,000 plus reimbursement for mileage.

Because the Authority holds easements on more than 130 properties and is required to annually inspect each property to ensure compliance with the terms of the easement, CEA interns review county records, contact land owners, conduct site visits, document changes to properties, and submit inspection reports.

Work schedule is flexible – generally at least 16 hours per week, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Interns work independently under the supervision of the county’s Natural Resource Planner, and are expected to complete their work during the summer.

Interns should be either high school juniors or seniors, college students working toward undergraduate or graduate degrees, or be recent college graduates. Preference will be given to students with an interest in environmental science.

Interns must have basic computer skills (Word and Excel). Interns will be set up with a work space, desktop PC, and office supplies. Interns must supply their own outdoor gear and transportation.

Position requires travel to properties throughout Clarke County, ability to walk across difficult terrain, and willingness to work outside in hot and/or wet weather conditions.

Preferred qualifications include excellent writing and oral communication skills, and ability to read maps. Ability to interpret aerial photos and/or familiarity with Clarke County geography and roads are pluses.

Submit a resume with references to Alison Teetor, Natural Resource Planner, at ateetor@clarkecounty.gov. Questions? Call 540-955-5134 or go to clarkelandconservation.org.

Ask a Mass Communication Alum: Nicholas Ruxton '14

Nicholas Ruxton ’14 knew that Shenandoah University felt like home moments after stepping onto campus. Ruxton was invited to check out the campus by Vice President for Student Life The Rev. Dr. Rhonda VanDyke after they met at a youth conference when he was a senior in high school. And, when President Tracy Fitzsimmons greeted him by name on move-in day, Ruxton got further confirmation that Shenandoah was the right place for him. “I enjoyed the small class sizes and the relationships that I built with my professors, many of whom I still communicate with regularly,” said Ruxton. “At SU you are never a number, you are a valued person in the community.”

Two of Ruxton’s fondest memories during his time at Shenandoah are traveling to Australia with the Global Citizenship Project and going on a spiritual pilgrimage to Iona, Scotland. He loved being able to experience different cultures, since these were his first trips leaving the East Coast of the United States, much less, the continent.
