Clemson Student-Athletes Recognized for UPIC Internship Participation

CLEMSON, S.C. – This semester, 23 Clemson student-athletes participated in the University Professional Internship and Co-op (UPIC) program, designed to provide experiences in the professional space that will assist students in their career paths both during and following their athletic career. Clemson Athletics recognized those individuals for their participation on April 14. 

Of the 23 interns this spring, 17 of them were first-time UPIC interns, earning valuable education in the workforce. The six returnees were Chloe O’Brien (Rowing), Keco Morrison (Track and Field), Trishauna Hemmings (Track and Field), Maylin Lindsey (Rowing), Pepper Kolman (Rowing) and Eleonor Wright (Rowing).

The Rowing program had nine participants in UPIC internships, most of any program, followed by Track and Field (six), and Volleyball (three). Men’s soccer and baseball each had two UPIC interns, and one cheerleader/rally cat held an internship in the Department of Communications.
