In June, The Aurora Foundation celebrated the graduation of it's second student veteran intern from the law offices of Troutman Sanders. For the second year in a row, a William & Mary Law Student has been welcomed into the firm's Virginia Beach offices to learn and grow in his prospective field.
Josh, a NCO from the USMC, is expecting to complete his J.D. from W&M in May of 2016. As a first-year law student, this internship was just the right experience he needed to help get ahead. "This was an absolutely fantastic opportunity. The contacts I made here are some of the biggest names in the region, and I have never had this kind of opportunity before."
Mike Gardner, a Coast Guard veteran himself, was Josh's Troutman Sanders supervisor, and noted that he is continually impressed with the young talent being brought to his firm from the Aurora Foundation.
Aurora is pleased to not only continue this partnership with Troutman Sanders, but also to impact the lives of veterans and their families, such as Josh Johnson. He noted that "the contacts I made are some of the biggest names I the region, and I have never had this kind of opportunity before."
