The Chester County Community Foundation is proud to announce that two of its West Chester University interns, John Allegretto of Hazelton, Pa. and Michael DePrince of Malvern, Pa., received top awards for their respective studies in political science and economics on Tuesday, April 17, at the Outstanding Student Award Ceremony for West Chester University’s College of Business and Public Affairs.

“It’s pretty awesome when an organization has one intern receive a top award, but having two interns just makes us that much more proud.” said Lisa Slawinski, Advancement Manager at the Community Foundation.

Both interns work to further the Community Foundation’s mission of “Connecting people who care with causes that matter.” Their studies in political science and economics help each intern understand community needs and challenges and how those issues translate to the work of the Community Foundation as a Community Builder. The Community Foundation is thankful for the opportunity to work with WCU students.
