At first glance, it may seem like an odd fit: an industrial engineering major working in the media services department. But Reid Morgart, a rising senior at Kansas State University, has found a crucial role at TWR this summer where he can put his skills to global use.
Q: How did you first hear about TWR?
I heard about it from a friend of mine who was raising support to come work here. She shared a little about the organization and the opportunities they have for engineers, so I started moving forward with the application process.
Q: What drew you to pursue an internship at TWR?
It was a cool opportunity to see the practical side of my major while also having a meaningful impact on the world.
Q: What kind of projects will you be working on this summer?
I’ll be doing some process analysis and documentation for the media services team.
Q: What are your plans after graduation?
I’m not sure yet. I’ll probably apply for things in and outside of Kansas and go wherever I get a job.
Q: What are you looking forward to doing in your spare time this summer?
I’m looking forward to seeing the area like Raleigh and other cities. We’re going to the beach and hopefully doing some hiking and seeing some concerts.
Q: Why would you recommend doing an internship with TWR?
You don’t have to be interested in going internationally as a missionary, but you can still spend a summer learning about your field of study while having an impact for the gospel. You at least have to have a heart for reaching people and making Jesus known.
Q: Let’s lighten up… What’s the best vacation you’ve been on?
After I graduated high school I went to Hawaii for a week with my family. My sister had just graduated from college, and my parents were celebrating their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, so it was a pretty great trip!
