Connor Keirce is a freshman, marketing major from Ashburn, Virginia. Though he does not currently have a minor, he plans to add one within the next year or two.
Connor attended this spring’s Career, Internship & Service Fair.  He took the career fair survey after the event and was randomly selected as the$1000 scholarship winner for Fall 2012.
“My experience at the Career Fair was great, I met a lot of great representatives and learned about some internship opportunities. I had no idea that JMU had a relationship with so many diverse groups of potential employers. I specifically connected with Camp Horizons, which is about 10 miles north of here. I am now an employee of theirs, working as an Outdoor Facilitator leading groups in outdoor adventure and team-building exercises. I had a great time, and I’m extremely glad I attended the fair. Everyone involved was strikingly professional, courteous, and friendly,” Connor said.
In the future he hopes to work in a marketing-related field and he hopes to travel.
On campus, Connor is involved as a properties master and set constructor for JMU Theater. He is also part of JMU Grotto, JMU’s caving club, Boarderline, a snowboarding club, and Madison International Learning Community.
