If you've stopped by the Chamber lately, or joined us at an event, you may have already had the privilege of meeting our student intern, Tim Zaman. Tim comes to us from Garland High School as part of the Career Prep Course led by instructor Jerri Scribner. Through a combination of classroom curriculum and real-world job experience, Tim is learning how to best prepare for his future. As such, one of his tasks was to reflect on the summer here at the Chamber and share with you all what he's learned in his first two months as an intern.
