Thanks to TCWN!

January 18th, 2009 by mmccorkle

When I first started interning at TCWN last February in order to get class credit at UT, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I didn’t know what an ARAP or NPDES was. I didn’t know what TDEC stood for. I barely even knew how to use the copier or their “fancy” phone system. Fortunately, Dana was there to enlighten me about the phone, among her many lessons. My one year at TCWN has been an invaluable experience, both educational and incredibly fun. I have had the chance to wade around wetland sites, dress up in a wetsuit and look for mussels, go up in a four-seater airplane, monitor streams, drive sneakily around suspicious developments, conduct file reviews, and so much more.

Most importantly, I have met and gotten to know the wonderful and hard-working staff of TCWN: Renee, Dana, Kristina, and my fellow intern Greg. I will be forever grateful for their patience and generosity in including me in everything TCWN does. I have learned so much this past year thanks to them.

I am getting ready to leave to study abroad for a semester in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I hope to start the Scottish TCWN satellite office and solve Scotland’s water problems.

I can’t thank TCWN enough for everything they’ve done for me as well as the wonderful work they do in protecting our state’s precious waters. Keep up the great work, guys!

All the best,

Morgan McCorkle
