Lee University student Caleb Lee has completed an internship with The Bridge, a senior assisted living facility, in Ooltewah.

Mr. Lee, a Cleveland native and Cleveland High School graduate, is a senior majoring in healthcare administration.

During the internship, Mr. Lee was responsible for urban outreach, making sales calls to encourage new customers to visit during COVID-19, and any additional work required by the team. Mr. Lee also had the opportunity to work directly with the residents.

“My favorite part of the internship was the residents,” said Mr. Lee. “Nothing compares to working with and serving people that I love.”

Jill Day, executive director at The Bridge in Ooltewah, said that Mr. Lee learned about operational standards and state regulations for assisted living in Tennessee through his internship.

“It was a pleasure to work with Caleb,” said Ms. Day. “I’m personally passionate about drawing the younger generation into senior housing. Finding young talent with a heart like Caleb’s doesn’t come easy.”

Mr. Lee hopes to work with senior living communities following his graduation in spring 2021.

“We are so proud of Caleb,” said Dr. Allison Pierce, assistant professor of business administration at Lee University. “He is a great example of the students we have in various facilities, interning as part of this degree program.”

In addition to The Bridge, students from Lee University’s School of Business participate in internships throughout the region each semester at other companies such as Garden Plaza, Life Care Centers of America, Signature Healthcare, SouthEast Bank, Tennova Healthcare, The Caring Place, Unum, and Volkswagen, among others.

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now.
