Meet the Intern, Zachary Cross

Zach is a SummerWorks intern who is ecstatic about his position in Commissioner Novick’s office. Zach is currently a sophomore at the University of Oregon and is aiming for a Business major, with a focus in advertising and marketing. After graduating from Central Catholic High School in 2012, Zach worked at a Chevron gas station, which has taught him mannerism, patience, and to respect all kinds of people. Zach is capable of interacting sufficiently with others and will do whatever it takes to get the job completed.

Zach is an active member in his community, participating in volunteer activities such as serving lunch at the Blanchet House, interacting with participants in the Nike Special Olympics, and is also a current volunteer at The Salvation Army. Zach enjoys helping his community and is willing to give his time in order to see the community prosper.

Throughout Zach’s life he has been blessed with many opportunities and plans to take full advantage of the chances he is given. His grandfather always told him “To whom much is given, much is expected” and Zach plans to follow this quote throughout his career. While interning this summer, Zach plans to gain experience involving politics and business, create relationships that will benefit him in the future, and enhance his professionalism.

In his free time, Zach enjoys playing basketball, listening to music, drawing, and traveling the country. Zach has visited over 15 states, and plans to travel more, when given the opportunity.
