Here at the TWP office, we are continually asking each other, “What would we do without our talented interns!?” These dedicated individuals donate their time, energy, and brain power to making our programs a success by helping with grant research and writing, translations, crowdfunding, and other tasks necessary for running a nonprofit organization. At any given time, we have an average of 5 interns working with staff to run our programs. Our interns come from diverse backgrounds and bring fresh ideas to our office.
One of these amazing interns is Sherry Moldenhauer, one of our National Development Interns who has worked with TWP’s Development Director, Heather Herrell, since Fall of 2012. Sherry has been an important part of our recent grant writing cycle and brings a unique natural resource management background to our Team. Sherry is most passionate about helping to raise funds for our Tribal Renewable Energy Program and enjoys working with an environmentally-friendly organization. She has been especially inspired by the Lakota culture and the work of our Tribal Program partner, Lakota Solar Enterprises.
“Every Tuesday and Thursday, Sherry arrives with a cheerful smile and dedicates five hours to researching and writing grants to support our Tribal Renewable Energy Program and Food Security Program. Thank you, Sherry, for all that you do for TWP!” – Heather Herrell, Development Director
On her free time, you can find Sherry exploring the alpine terrain of Colorado, reading, and doing yard work with her dog by her side.
