Rust students slated to intern
Three students from Rust College will spend their summer participating in internships via the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program. Cleotha Taylor, Shakaree Hale, and Dionyal Spencer were all chosen after interviews were conducted with each of the candidates.
Taylor, a junior biology major from Yazoo City, Mississippi; Hale, a junior biology major from Crenshaw, Mississippi, and Spencer, a junior Mass Communications major from Conyers, Georgia will complete internships during the summer of 2011. Their accomplishments will be featured upon their return to Rust College in the fall.
