Program Testimonial: "Food and beverage management was an internship I never even considered pursing until it was offered to me by the Spinners. Upon entering the world of food and beverage for the very first time, I was very happy with the management skills that I was able use and learn. There were no other management opportunities like that within the internship program. Learning how to deal and work with employees was the most important thing I learned during my internship with the Lowell Spinners and it definitely made me a more marketable candidate for entering the real world. Today, I am running the Nashua Silver Knights baseball teams day to day operation as their general manager and I am positive that my experience in F&B got me here." -Ronnie Wallace, GM, Nashua Silver Knights
