Tennessee Clean Fuels is proud to welcome our three new interns for Fall2017. These interns are part of the Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program (CCUWDP), a program led by Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. CCUWDP brings together over 100 Clean Cities Coalitions around the country, hiring interns in order to prepare the next generation of leaders in alternative fuels and clean transportation.
Meet our interns:
Alex is a senior at Vanderbilt University studying Economics and Environmental Science, and he’s interested in business strategy and finance, especially within environment-focused organizations. Alex grew up in Hendersonville, Tennessee, and has always considered himself a Nashville local both at home and at school. Most summer weekends he can be found fishing, hiking, or exploring the surrounding Middle Tennessee natural zones like the Caney Fork River and Dale Hollow Lake, and in the winter he enjoys the downtown Nashville music scene.
Coral is a senior at Maryville College pursuing a bachelor’s in Environmental Studies. While she has no precise idea of what she wants to do, her goal in life is to make a positive, sustainable difference for the planet Earth and its biosphere (which includes humans). Coral likes to spend her free time snuggling with her cat, exploring new places, traveling, cooking vegan meals, and looking at art.
