Students work paid internships in Georgetown this summer

Do you remember the number game from childhood called “Connect the Dots”? There were a bunch of numbered dots arranged in such a way so that when you connected them with a line in numerical order, they created a clear picture.

Pam Martin, political science professor at Coastal Carolina University, has taken that childhood game to a whole new level by envisioning, orchestrating and leading a collaborative effort among students, businesses and nonprofits in Georgetown County that benefits everyone involved. Only instead of connecting the dots, Martin connects people.
