White Sands Missile Range Executive Director Richard Meador welcomed 15 interns to the 10-week Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics intern program June 3 at the Professional Development Center.
The STEM interns include students from New Mexico State University, the University of Texas El Paso, and a couple of interns from other states.
Later in the day WSMR Commander Brig. Gen. Greg Brady welcomed the interns at a kickoff luncheon where he talked on traits of success. He told the interns to make sure and get to know each other and to build relationships that will bridge any type of obstacles. He also told them to branch out and talk to other directors and observe how they manage.
Brady told them that it is important to have a vision of where they want to go but to understand how that affects everyone around them.
