She has already gained hands-on experience working in the Crow Group Design Department. “I hope to gain real world experience with the purpose of aiding in my future career and to make everlasting relationships with my coworkers,” she said.

Logan Criswell is from Cabot and is a senior Emergency Management student at Arkansas Tech University. He will be assisting the Crow Group HSE Department with safety assessments and implementing a new online training platform. “I chose Crow Group for my internship, because it was a really great opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the construction field,” he said. “I can see good opportunities that could open up for me in the future having this experience.”  

Sydney Bratton is from Bryant and is a senior studying Civil Engineering at Louisiana Tech University. Her focus in on water/wastewater, and she will be working with the Crow Group engineering team on active design projects. “I am looking forward to learning more and gaining experience in the water/wastewater field,” she said.

The Crow Group internship program is designed to expose students nearing graduation to a real-world experience working in the construction and engineering industry. The interns at Crow will be working side-by-side with professional engineers, construction project managers and safety professionals. They will also get to participate in the planning and execution of actual projects.    

Civil Engineer and Program Mentor John Doyle, P.E. said, “I think the nature of our company as both a design and construction company provides a really unique opportunity for students to be exposed to the inner workings of a broad cross section of the industry. It gives them a chance to evaluate multiple options for their future career path in one place. The design-build delivery method is growing quickly, and an internship within a firm like ours gives them a chance to gain valuable experience early. This can set them apart from other college graduates that want to get into this field.”  

Landscape Architect and Program Mentor David Watkins, P.L.A. added, “We want to create a fun environment that gives interns well-rounded construction and design experience so that they can apply what they have learned during their studies to real world projects.”

Crow Group President Brian Rohlman said, “We are so excited to have this bright group of interns working at our firm for the summer. They bring a fresh perspective on new technologies and practices from each of their respective programs. They are already proving to be a valuable addition to our team, and we just hope they learn as much from us as we are learning from them.”
