A Summer 2015 Intern Feature


The Upper Room is often blessed to have dedicated and talented interns and students who spend a summer or school semester—or two—working in various areas of our ministry. In the summer of 2015, we had six interns, and we want to publicly say “thank you” to each of them for the work and energy they each brought to our Nashville, Tennessee offices.

Today, we celebrate Brooke Pernice!

Brooke Pernice is a Belmont University (Nashville, TN) student majoring in Religion with a minor in Writing. She is working with the Interpretation and Development team to connect with our Braille edition readers and to research new formats for reaching the blind. Brooke has talked with hundreds of our Braille readers by phone, email, or personal correspondence, and has learned much about their faith journeys as well as their reading preferences. She has also prepared and lead two chapel services this summer, where she blessed us with her singing and banjo! She starts her senior year next week.

    What a difference you have made this summer! We have made great improvements on the Braille edition, connected with hundreds of our readers, formed new partnerships that will expand our ministry, and much more. I’m grateful that you were able to find a home with The Upper Room. It’s been a pleasure to have you on our team. Plus, the staff chapel services where you lead or brought music were meaningful to us all. Best wishes on a great school year ahead. -Sherry
