New executive director for Indiana INTERNnet internship program

The state's leading resource for connecting Hoosier students with in-state employers for internship opportunities has a new executive director.

Indiana INTERNnet announced the arrival of Janet Boston. She most recently was the director of marketing/director of regional services for the Arts Council of Indianapolis. Boston has a bachelor's degree in business from Indiana University and an MBA from Butler University.

Boston brings extensive management, communications, marketing, planning and fundraising skills to the executive director position, according to Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. The Indiana Chamber has managed the Indiana INTERNnet program, which is funded by a grant from Lilly Endowment, since January 2006.

"In particular, we believe Janet's track record of leadership and relationship-building in the community, non-profit and corporate worlds are ideal for working with the various interests involved in Indiana INTERNNet - be it the students, businesses or universities," Brinegar said.

"We’re very excited to be working with Janet Boston," said Jennifer Fisher, graduate retention program manager at The Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce. "As our program expands to serve an even larger portion of Northeast Indiana, we look forward to partnering with her."
