Two MU students selected as inaugural fellows for new Greater Fort Wayne Inc. program

Greater Fort Wayne Inc. announced on Friday the kickoff of GFW Fellows, a yearlong investor program created to attract and retain collegiate talent in Fort Wayne and Allen County.

An inaugural group of 14 sophomore, junior and senior college students have been named to the Fellows program, including two from Manchester University:

  • Tyler Klein, a junior mathematics major from Connersville, at Lincoln Financial.
  • Andrew Sparger, a senior in accounting and finance from Noblesville, at BKD, LLP.

“This is a vibrant, bold program that benefits students, employers and our community,” said Ron Turpin, board chair of GFW Inc. in the release. “GFW Fellows combines a high-quality internship with personal development, community service, networking, and connections to young professionals, business and community leaders.”

Fellows will attend monthly personal development workshops that focus on problem-solving, communication styles, critical thinking, financial literacy, diversity and inclusion, and personal brand protection, the release said. A 12-week paid summer internship begins May 18 and includes housing.
