The Force Behind the Lift: Intern Edition

Here at Rotary we are pleased to offer internships to some of the best and brightest college students, so that they may gain valuable work experience from the makers of the "World's Most Trusted Lift."  They mean more to Rotary than a short 3 month "summer job," they become part of the Rotary family.  From the production floor to the accounting department, our interns work alongside us every day.  How about we learn a little more about the "little lifters."

I was actually watching "2 Fast 2 Furious" the other day and noticed they had Rotary Lifts in the movie which was pretty cool.

 Q: What is a fun fact that people may not know about you?

DylanOne fun fact is that I recently got to play basketball with IU’s star player, Yogi Ferrell. It was a great experience, but let’s just say there’s a reason he’s getting paid to play and I’m not.
