The John M Crockett Internship Fund

SCETV announced the John M. Crockett Internship Fund has been established through the ETV Endowment to receive gifts to support a special internship program for students specializing in engineering.   John frequently spoke to me about the critical need to get aspiring young engineers into the ETV organization and to get them trained as Amateur Radio Operators.   This fund will expand the ETV Endowment’s existing internship program with a new position focused on engineering each year.  Memorial gifts may be made to the John M. Crockett Internship Fund through the ETV Endowment, 401 East Kennedy St., Suite B-1, Spartanburg, SC 29301
