MARQUETTE – Kiejuan Davis, a Northern Michigan University student from Jackson, Mich., has been offered a six-week summer internship with the Green Bay Packers.  Davis applied through the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society and received word of his acceptance at the end of the academic year.

            “I applied for this internship last year and wasn’t accepted, so I revised my resume and figured out which teams I would work the best with,” said Davis, a junior athletic training major.  “When I was notified on the last day of finals week that I had been accepted, it surprised me because I had given up on it.  My goal in the athletic training field is to work with a pro football team, so this internship will help me put my foot in the door and hopefully open up more opportunities.”

            Davis is the third student from NMU to work with the Packers in the past three years. 

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a student to get an internship with a professional athletic team,” said Julie Rochester, an NMU professor of health, physical education and recreation.  “These internships are competitive, so it’s extremely exciting for an NMU student to be offered this experience.  It also boosts NMU’s reputation in terms of student recruitment.”

            Davis will begin his internship at the end of July.
