Recent Copiah-Lincoln Community College graduate Sarah Walker of Magnolia has earned a prestigious internship at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Walker, a May 2022 Culinary Arts Technology graduate, will begin her six-month internship with the Disney College Program in July. Walker says her time at Co-Lin helped prepare her for this experience.

“Co-Lin taught me independence and how to be able to make new friends in any environment,” said Walker. “I’m not certain yet what exact job I will have at Disney, but I am hoping for a culinary experience. Overall, I know I will get to help make dreams come true for our guests.”

While completing the internship, Walker will continue her education online by pursing a bachelor’s degree from the Mississippi University for Women. Walker has a desire to be a mentor to other culinary arts students on the high school or college level.
