Rather than take a vacation, two student-athletes found themselves amazing internship opportunities in their field over the summer. Gabby Garza, a senior soccer player from Williamston, Mich. spent her summer working on the construction of the Little Ceasers Arena in downtown Detroit, Mich. Her primary assignment was to work with a project engineer doing document control, as a project the size of a professional sports arena requires immense, accurate documentation of all communications and changes! Wade Schetter, a senior basketball player from Carney, Mich. spent his summer completing his second internship with Mortenson Construction. Both of Schetter's internships have revolved around the construction of various wind farms, while his daily duties included quality control and working with both craft members and contractors.
