Welcome Nick Griffiths, Summer Intern

We welcome Nick Griffiths as our summer intern. Nick will be assisting with the five year Comprehensive Regional Economic Development plan (CREDS). He will be conducting interviews and surveys with community members and partners which will be used to create goals and strategies around regional economic development activities. We are excited to have him working with us.

Thanks to the Center for Small Towns

for helping us connect with this amazing student!



"Hello! I’m Nick Griffiths, a fourth year student at the University of Minnesota, Morris. As the 2016 Region Five summer Intern, I’ll be talking with some of you in the near future about community and economic development throughout the five county region, and hope to make a great impact on the area.

I will be receiving a BA of Statistics, BA of Economics and a minor Mathematics from UMM in the spring, and hope to put some of those analytical and social skills to good use over this summer long project. I have worked over the past year as a student employee at the University of Minnesota in two positions both involving data collection and analysis and economic development through the Center for Small Towns office of the U of MN Morris.

In addition to this internship some of my other passions are the outdoors, music and sports. I am looking forward to our upcoming conversations.
