BayCoast supports summer intern program

Posted 6/7/13

For the second year, BayCoast Bank has provided $10,000 to help fund the Westport River Watershed Alliance’s summer internship program.

The organization, which promotes education, performs scientific research and advocates for environmental issues, hires students from local colleges to assist with its education and monitoring programs.

This year’s grant allows WRWA to welcome Nina Santos and Caitlyn Riley as summer interns.

Riley recently graduated from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and hopes to pursue a graduate degree in ecology in the future.

Santos has just completed her freshman year at the same university, where she is working on a bachelor’s degree in biology.

“The internships offered by the WRWA give students a unique opportunity to forge connections between their academics and the real world,” said Nicholas Christ, BayCoast Bank president and CEO. “It’s an invaluable experience that merges hands-on learning with career exploration. We are proud to once again support the WRWA and its educational programs.”
