PS Alum Assists on Amazing Astros Season!
This past summer Brooke Jenkins ('11) had the opportunity to intern for the Houston Astros. During her internship she served in the Retail and Merchandise Department, and she got to learn and experience first hand everything that happens on this side of the business. From running the ten team stores in the stadium, to sitting in on meetings about buying new merchandise, helping unload merchandise in the warehouse and everything in between.
Brooke had the privilege to work on several projects throughout the summer. She was able to work with the Authentication team and work on a project for that part of our department. She was also able to help with a Spring Training Review, a Retail Marketing Investment Fund and Budget project, and was able to help create the Organization's Newsletter over the summer.
Since the end of her internship in August, due to school, Brooke kept in close touch with her department and the organization. During the team's post-season run she was asked to come back and help as the team hosted three home World Series Games. This was such an incredible honor to be asked to come help work these games. Brooke had the time of her life working for the team, she grew up supporting, in the World Series. It has been the experience of a lifetime and she was so thankful to The Houston Astros for the opportunities they gave her. What a team, what an organization and what a season!
Way to go, Brooke!
