Anadarko Industries Announces Selection of Wichita Tribe Summer Intern
Michael Bert of Calgary, Canada has been selected as the 2014 summer intern for the first annual Anadarko Industries (AI) Wichita Summer Intern Program. Mr. Bert is an enrolled member of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes and is currently in his final two years of the civil engineering technology program at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in pursuit of a Construction Management major. He earned a 3.5 GPA after the first year while playing competitive basketball for SAIT. After graduating, his plan is to continue in the Construction Project Management Bachelor Program. He also has several years of business management courses to round out a solid education in technical, engineering and business.
This background will fit well with AI as a government services provider in warehouse logistics, construction safety, and engineering. His business education will also help him in understanding AI’s corporate business processes. “We are extremely excited and looking forward to Mike joining us for the summer. With his background, he should be able to spend time on and contribute to some of our contracts and also help us out at corporate.” – Kenn Hall, Vice President. “We are also proud to help Wichita members develop a sound foundation to pursue a business career.” In being selected, Mr. Bert stated that “I take pride in the fact that I am a Wichita tribal member and would love to give back to my community once I am done with school.”
This intern program will be a 9 week program during the months of June and July in Houston, TX at AIs headquarters. Half of the program will allow the intern to observe and participate in some of AI’s contract operations. For the other half of the program, the intern will be working closely with corporate management supporting corporate activities such as market research, financial reporting, contract administration and process improvement activities. The intern program will include him attending the Wichita annual meeting in July to report AI’s annual performance and to share his experience in the intern program.
