SEDC Welcomes Summer Intern, Morgan Roberts

Spearfish Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) is happy to welcome Morgan Roberts, a 2019 graduate of Spearfish High School, as a part-time intern in the office this summer. Morgan will be a senior this fall at the University of South Dakota (USD) studying economics, accounting, and finance. Morgan is involved on campus as a Resident Assistant, President of the United Nations Association, National Communications Coordinator for the Residence Hall Association, and a Junior Annalist in Coyote Capital Management. During her time at Spearfish High School, Morgan was Captain of the Debate Team, Founder and President of the Future Business Leaders of America Club, and a member of the Knowledge Bowl, Cross-Country, and Track.

Prior to this internship with SEDC, Morgan gained valuable work experience through the Vermillion Area Chamber and Development Company (VCDC) as the Economic Development Intern in the spring semester of 2020. During her time there she assisted with a workforce housing initiative and researched new applicants in the process of moving their business to the Vermillion area.

During her time at SEDC this summer, Morgan will work alongside SEDC staff on a wide variety of economic development projects and initiatives. “I have loved growing up in Spearfish, and I am so excited to use my skills and experience to give back to the Spearfish community while learning more about the practical application of my business degrees,” said Morgan. “I enjoyed my time with the VCDC and cannot wait to get more hands-on experience with SEDC!”

“We are delighted to have Morgan on the team,” said Kory Menken, SEDC Executive Director. “Internships are a great way for students to strengthen their leadership talents, their ability to work well with different groups of individuals, and their skills in seeing projects through from start to finish. Additionally, interns can bring with them novel perspectives and fresh ideas.”
