Wyatt Lafreniere of Lincolnville is Allen Insurance and Financial’s 2013 summer intern.
Lafreniere, a 2012 graduate of Camden Hills Regional High School, is double majoring in finance and resource economics at the University of Massachusetts’ Isenberg School of Management in Amherst, Mass.
“My goal for my internship here at Allen Financial is to learn more about the business world — to just get a feel for how a business works and what I might be doing after I graduate. It is nice to see how what I am being taught in classes is applied in the real world with actual problems,” said Lafreniere.
Allen Insurance and Financial’s summer internship program allows a local high school graduate the opportunity to learn about each of the company’s insurance and financial planning departments. Lafreniere’s desk is based in the personal insurance department, where he is working with Account Executives Cale Pickford and Jennifer Coffin.
In the fall, Lafreniere plans to play club ultimate Frisbee and club soccer.
