Meet Jeries Kitlo, a rising senior at Bethlehem University who is interning in Washington, DC, at the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA. Jeries is majoring in Accounting and minoring in Business Administration. He is interning this summer thanks to the Sir John McGuckin Mentoring and Internship Program.
 
Jeries is assisting in the Public Affairs and Sacramental Records departments of the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA. With a diverse workload, he is gaining numerous new skills and a better understanding of the structure of not-for-profit organizations. Jeries is shown above with members of the staff of the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA.
This summer internship is keeping him excited, motivated, and always looking forward to new opportunities. "I learned how to get around in a city as large as Washington, DC, at least compared to my hometown of Bethlehem, and how to manage my time to excel in my internship while still having fun in this beautiful city." Jeries is shown to the right with fellow McGuckin Interns, Ahmed Abu Monshar, and Khalil Barakat enjoying America's favorite pastime, at a game at National's Park!
 
At Bethlehem University, Jeries is highly involved and enjoys the variety of areas of studies offered at Bethlehem University. "Attending Bethlehem University has taught me a lot of valuable lessons in different aspects of life." He also appreciates the diversity of faith at Bethlehem University. "The University celebrates religious diversity, and it offers a required religious studies course that answers some general questions about Christianity and Islam, and encourages respectful dialogue and curiosity."
 
Among Jeries' favorite parts of Bethlehem University are the Christian Brothers who live, work, and teach on campus. "The Brothers are so giving and selfless. They are committed to their jobs and the mission of education. Most importantly, they do it with so much passion and dedication that they're always cheerful. They're fun to be around!"
Jeries will graduate Bethlehem University next June, leaving his home-away-from-home. Upon graduating, he plans to find a job that will capitalize on the education he received from Bethlehem University. He hopes to continue his education, to enable him to open an auditing firm to hire and help train aspiring young accountants and auditors; thereby helping the local community via economic growth.
 
Grateful for the many supporters of Bethlehem University and the Foundation, Jeries wanted to express his appreciation: "Thank you. Even the smallest of gestures of support go a long way in our community at the University. We're deeply grateful for the many donors from the United States and abroad."
