HBCU Internship Kick Off

This fall SeKON created an internship program specifically designed to serve students enrolled with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The objective is to provide experiential opportunities for students interested in federal government contracting.Interns on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial

The hope is to develop future SeKON Family members. To kick start the program, students were invited to SeKON’s headquarters to meet their SeKON family and mentors. Our HBCU interns and officials from their respective institutions experienced the same orientation that all SeKON associates have on their first stay at SeKON. Over three days in the CapitolRegion they toured many National Monuments along with the National Museum of AfricanAmerican History and Culture.

The interns enjoyed touring a Core Site data center inReston before heading home. On the last day they were also treated to a luncheon and meeting with our CEO Dr. Wilson. We sent them home tired, but anxious to learn about the “real world” and what it means to be a member of the SeKON Family.

Special thanks to our HR team of Cameron Kirby and LeRoy Purdie for developing, planning, and executing our new HBCU Intern Program. Thanks to Margo Crim for managing the details and the logistics. We greatly appreciate PMs CharlieWalker, Jimmy Zoller, and Valerie Sayd for volunteering to mentor our interns.
