UKIAH, Calif. – Trevor Mockel recently was selected as the second intern for the year to receive the $1,000 Albert and Patricia Beltrami Scholarship for internships in local government.
Mockel is currently enrolled in 17.0 units and has completed 57 units at Mendocino College maintaining a 3.0 grade point average.
He plans to transfer to Sacramento State next year and study administration of justice.
He is interested in government and explains a fascination in understanding the inner workings of government; from how decisions are made to the impact of those decisions to the residents of a community.
In the fall of 2011, Mendocino College student Connie Patterson received the internship after completing a very successful and rewarding internship with the Mendocino County Executive Office.
Like Patterson, Mockel will intern for the executive office and has already been assigned a research project.
Mockel will spend 10 hours per week in the county office through this June to complete the required 2.0 units of Cooperative Work Experience.
Beltrami generously established this scholarship with a mandatory internship in local government to encourage students to be interested, concerned and to guarantee the next generation of leaders in local government.
