Last week, with generous sponsorship from international law firm Reed Smith, FC2S held our annual Summer Celebration at the firm’s office in downtown Washington, DC. The celebration wrapped up our 2012 Aim Higher program, which places outstanding students in prestigious internships in Washington, DC and other major cities across the U.S. and provides the assistance they need to participate. The event, held on the penthouse level of Reed Smith’s high-rise building, allowed for magnificent views of the nation’s capital. Aim Higher fellows and other FC2S students and graduates were there in full force, mingling with sponsors, partners, volunteers, employers and FC2S staff. Check out the photo of our 2012 fellows below (can you believe we were able to wrangle them all up for one big photo?).
