Meaghan_thumb.jpg I spent the summer working two jobs (at the Russell Mill Pool and Tennis Club and cashiering at Market Basket); participating in early morning cross country practices; making numerous college visits and most importantly, having a wonderful time interning in the Chelmsford Town Clerk’s Office.

Working in the Clerk’s office has been such a fun experience. The whole crew was a pleasure to work with and I’m so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to meet them. My internship in the Clerk’s Office provided me with hands-on work experience on a wide variety of projects, all of which will be beneficial in preparing me for my future jobs in the “real world.” I got to assist with the special senate election, including designing and creating the “inactive voter” cards, helping with organizing the ballots being sent to each of the precincts, and then making follow-up “thank you” phone calls to all the election workers. I also got to visit many other town departments when I hand-delivered the 2013 street listing to other offices, and I assisted with the physician registration process. My biggest project, however, was researching and drafting an informational pamphlet for Chelmsford residents, especially newcomers to town, to help them learn more about the wonderful community of Chelmsford. This gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about the Town of Chelmsford and I got a chance to embark on my public relations adventure early.

I will be a senior at Chelmsford High School this year and graduating in 2014. I’m an active member of the Livesmart Club, Class representatives, the international DECA business club, and I will be a captain of Chelmsford High’s girl track team. I hope to attend Quinnipiac University where I plan to major in marketing with a concentration in public relations.
Fun Fact: My favorite event in track is the 400 hurdles and in college I want to become a steeplechaser.
