“Our education partners are producing amazing talent for our region, and Jared is a great example of the homegrown talent we want to retain,” said Leisa Mulcahy, Vice President of Workforce. “The NKY Chamber is committed to helping our businesses in the region adopt best practices and policies that will help them attract and retain talent in their organizations. Our partnership with Graydon in creating this program has been critical. Their sponsorship provides the opportunity to implement best practices into this paid internship program.”
