Summer Intern Jenny McCullen

Jenny comes to the MRC from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she is majoring in Sustainable Business (just like Katie!) and minoring in Women's Studies. 

Jenny has been working hard this summer coordinating recycling for the SummerFest in Indian River, MI. This is an important event for the MRC, funded by the Steve Chalker Memorial Fund, in honor of longtime MRC Board member Steve Chalker.
