My name is Luke Lawn and I am currently a senior in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University. My course of study is Information Management and Technology and I have a minor in global enterprise technologies. I am very excited to be working with WCNY throughout the course of this semester. I am working with a project team of three other students at Syracuse to produce new content for the WCNY website. Our goal is to actively engage the community through fun and frequent events in the area.
This summer I worked for a Pharmaceutical Service company in Exton, PA. While I was there, I had the opportunity to take a week of my internship and dedicate it to community service. I assisted a local food shelter move their entire operation to a new location. This included hundreds of thousands of pounds of food products, business materials, shelving and more. I also assisted with updating their website content. I enjoy giving back to the community and will look to work for companies who also value giving back to their communities.
I am passionate about technology and how it can be used to better our world. One of the reasons I am so excited to be working with WCNY is their utilization of many forms of technology. Education is the basis for a strong society. I have been fortunate enough to have access to spectacular educational facilities throughout my life and I look forward to promoting the education of others through community engagement.
