Chester County 2020 collaborates with West Chester University
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Sep. 4, 2013 – Chester County 2020, a local non-profit organization that works to connect and educate Chester County’s residents, businesses and political leaders has made a key connection with West Chester University. Chester County 2020 engages stakeholders in cooperative efforts to address common issues; dispel misguided rumors that develop in any community discussion; and produce measurable action on issues that affect the county’s quality of life. The West Chester University Department of Geography and Planning, in the College of Business and Public Affairs recognized that these would be key skills for their students to learn and experience first-hand. After months of talk and cooperation, an internship track has finally been created within the Department of Geography and Planning that will provide internships with available credit for work with Chester County 2020. Chester County 2020 and West Chester University have been co-sponsors, with the Chester County Planning Commission in presenting the accredited Master Planner Program since 2003. This program educates community members, municipal officials and professionals using a curriculum based on the Pennsylvania Municipalities Code.
The first intern that has been selected to kick off the internship in the Fall 2013 semester is Geena Ramondo. She has been working with Chester County 2020 since the year prior and is excited that cooperation amongst a lot of key individuals in both organizations had allowed her to receive credit while serving a meaningful cause and gaining so much real world experience. Professor George Fasic and Professor Matin Katari were instrumental in establishing the track within the university and they will be keeping their eyes out for upcoming interns that will be a good fit for the program. For more information about the internship program or Chester County 2020 in general contact email@example.com or call 484-680-5570.
Stands for Octorara Area Business, Engineering, Science & Technology. Chester County 2020 stands for wise land use through Landscapes, the County’s comprehensive plan to manage growth. Agricultural lands are an important part of the Landscapes vision, as a means of local food production, as the capstones of our major watersheds, and as a vital part of our County’s economy. In order to have agricultural lands, we must have folks practicing agriculture, and agricultural education provides the path for our new farmers to follow.
