The Boston Private Industry Council (PIC) honored BBA’s own Katie D’Angelo with a 2015 PIC Achiever for her work expanding the BBA Summer Jobs Program at their annual meeting yesterday. As you may remember, the BBA Summer Jobs Program has provided more and more legal internships for Boston teens each summer, reaching an all-time high of 65 positions this past summer.
Here’s what the PIC had to say about Katie:
“Katie connects students to some of Boston’s most influential and powerful law firms. She works closely with PIC career specialists to understand the skill set and character of each and every student applicant, always looking for the perfect match. Over the past four years, she has increased the popularity of the program among law firms—and law departments within larger organizations—while adding professional development, financial literacy, and dynamic guest speakers to the BBA intern experience. Though the competition for BBA internships is fierce, Katie makes sure that students participate from almost every Boston public high school.”
We at the BBA couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Katie!
