Bailey Hays, a Human Resource Management major, was recently named Athens State University’s Honorable Mention for Intern Student of the Year. Hays was offered two internships during her time at Athens State. She completed her first internship in Summer 2017 with Polyplex, and she completed her second internship with Trident Technologies in the spring and summer of 2018.
“I feel so blessed to have been able to experience two internships within my last few semesters of college,” states Hays. “I know that I will be able to use all of the things that I have learned through my internships in my future career.”
“Ms. Hays always conducted herself with poise and maturity,” stated Lisa Landers, Hays’ Supervisor at Trident Technologies. “We work in a military environment and Bailey adapted to it with no problem. She has proven herself to be competent in every task she was given and is quite proficient with software systems and Excel.”
Hays also worked as a Student Worker in Athens State’s Admissions Office and Enrollment Center from 2016 – 2018. Supervisor Kayla Tankersley enjoyed working with Hays, stating, “Bailey had a positive attitude that was contagious. During her time as a work study for Admissions and the Enrollment Center, she was hardworking and took initiative to learn as much about her job as she could.”
