Joseph Scott, Eastgate's Accounting Intern, was honored at a special ceremony at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus for his participation in the 2017 Ohio Export Internship Program.

The Ohio Export Internship Program, created by the Ohio Development Services Agency and offered at Youngstown State University and the Ohio State University, provides an opportunity for businesses interested in exporting. Companies are matched with college students who have taken export-focused coursework. In the five years of the program, 144 student-company matches have been created, resulting in more than $26 million in expected global sales and 25 full-time job offers to students.

The program is a partnership between the Ohio Development Services Agency, Ohio State and YSU.

Joseph Scott is a junior at YSU, majoring in accounting, and has worked as an accounting intern at Eastgate Regional Council of Governments since August 2016. He is the president of the Rotaract Club where he is responsible for organizing volunteer projects. Scott also speaks conversational French.
