Next up on Campbell House’s roster of summer interns is Amanda, who’s staying in St. Louis for the summer in order to work on some great projects with us. Though she’s originally from the Metro-East, her family moved down south several years ago and we’re happy to welcome her back to her hometown! Amanda is also our resident sports enthusiast, most recently keeping us in the loop on Team USA’s performance in the World Cup with a snazzy live-feed app on her phone that had us cheering and jeering for most of the afternoon.
