County’s internship program grows


Since the Henrico County government internship program began its pilot program in 2012 with only two interns, it has transformed to become a year-long program that provides students at the high school and college level the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with local government, while also providing a vital resource for the community.

Noelle Bingham, 32, entered her first semester at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community college in the fall. After returning to school she realized that she wanted to gain real experience in her desired professional field, and that’s when she turned to the Henrico internship program.

Bingham works with the Division of Fire, reporting to Chief Rosenbaum three days a week and focusing on developing marketing materials and performing graphics work, such as redesigning brochures for hiring, fire prevention, festivals and more.
