Working with the PICS program is a tremendously fun way for me to stay in touch with the next generation. All of these bright and energetic young men and women are our assurance that the world’s next decades are in good hands. Whether interviewing multiple candidates for next summer’s internships or being an Alumni Partner to one, I find my spirits lifted and my smile brighter in getting to know them. I wish I could grant every one of them a summer to remember.
