Guam - Governor Felix Camacho appointed the island's first Pacific Basin Development Council and Homeland Security science and technology interns today. Felisa Fernandez and Wojciech M. Czerwonka have been assigned to Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense for the 2010 spring semester.

The Governor's Office says each intern will complete a special project utilizing the student's science and technology skills, and will be eligible to participate in the eight-week Summer Institute on Maritime Security Research at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.

"I'm proud that two of our university students are a part of a selective group that will study at such a prestigious institute," said the governor.  "We wish them well as they represent our island and our region in what we hope will be a continuing internship opportunity for our students."
