Athens State Student Named State Cooperative Education Student of the Year

July 24, 2013

ATHENS, AL - Marka Duke, a Business Management major from Hanceville, was named the Alabama Cooperative Education Student of the Year. In June, she was named Athens State’s Cooperative Education Student of the Year and was awarded the state-wide title at the Alabama Association of Colleges and Employer conference in Auburn this month. Duke was assigned an internship at the Decatur Downtown Redevelopment Authority beginning in May 2012.

“We are thrilled that Marka was recognized on the state level for her good work,” stated Saralyn Mitchell, Athens State Director of Career Counseling Services and Cooperative Education. “More than 15 universities located throughout the state of Alabama submitted nominations and were represented at the conference along with numerous prospective employers.

The Alabama Association of Colleges and Employers serves as a consortium for cooperative education, career services and employers. Membership in this organization provides networking opportunities to benefit the state’s university students, their future employees as well as providing professional development. The mission of the organization provides a resource for industry and education to partner to promote a competent and productive workforce.

At Athens State, students entering the Cooperative Education Program must be recommended by a member of the faculty and be degree-seeking with at least at 2.5 GPA. They must have completed at least one semester at Athens State and should not be in their final semester before graduating.
