Jimmy goes with iGo summer like peanut butter and jelly. Like Scooby and Shaggy. Like shawarma and hummus. Like Frodo and Sam. Yes, Jimmy. This is the name we give our summer interns at iGo Global. Everyone needs a friend named Jimmy.
We are pleased to be able to introduce this year’s Jimmy to you. Always behind the scenes and never getting enough credit, Jimmy is a picture of servant leadership at iGo. Jimmy comes to help iGo mobilize and train hundreds of students every summer. They count T-shirts, they stuff envelopes, they organize Base Camp materials, they wash rancid iGosian costumes, they print iGo currency, they set up backdrops, and they load/unload the trailer at least 187 times in 11 weeks.
So before Jimmy disappears into the warehouse at iGo World Wide Headquarters (located in the Republic of Texas), or gets lost in the 10 acre wood behind Webster Conference Center in Kansas, we thought you should at least meet them and get to know them a little.
