Parker Davis is a DME intern with the External Affairs Department and is also a senior studying international studies and political science at Virginia Military Institute where he is involved in a wide variety of different clubs and organizations. His responsibilities in External Affairs involve taking on projects or overloads from other departments in the VA, distributing them on Trello boards and sending them out to other team members which David and other External Affairs interns have to then monitor and make sure their drafts are posted in the right way.
During his time at the internship, Davis has had the responsibility of keeping the projects in External Affairs up-to-date and tracking the timelines of the projects that he and other interns work on from beginning to end. Public relations is one of the reasons Davis joined External Affairs. External Affairs is a new department at the DME Internship and Davis says that he is still trying to figure out how to better serve in his role as “informant” to others interns and the Department Head in External Affairs.
