SAPULPA, OK (June 23, 2020) – Meet Lauren Williams and Jade Roubideaux, two Oklahoma State University summer interns with Reed Architecture and Interiors.
The internship provides Williams, in OSU’s School of Architecture, and Roubideaux, under the College of Human Sciences’ interior design program, hands-on experience with a variety of Reed Architecture projects. These students also gain valuable time using the firm’s state-of-the-art software.
“I’m learning a lot here,” Williams said of working with principal David Reed. “He’s putting me wherever he needs me. I’m having a good time.”
Roubideaux also appreciates the wide variety of assignments. Reed Architecture’s clients range from education and sports programs to commercial businesses and churches. The company’s recent move to downtown Sapulpa also pleased the duo.
“I love the environment that they’ve created,” said Roubideaux. “I think it’s a great place to be creative and have free range. It’s OK to make mistakes here because they’re always going to be available to help you.”
Both students expect this internship to help them further define their career goals while gaining valuable work skills.
“Other firms that I applied for, they refused me because I lacked the experience,” said Williams. “I really appreciate David giving me the chance to prove myself.”
This marks the fifth straight year Reed Architecture has employed at least one summer intern.
"We are very excited about this summer's interns,” said David Reed. “Jade and Lauren are a great fit with our team. They both have great attitudes and are eager to learn what goes on in a design firm. We are very blessed to have young talented designers willing to jump in and be productive."
