MONROE, La. ­­- Michelle Mulhearn, a senior aviation major at the University of Louisiana Monroe from Kingwood, Texas, has accepted an internship at United Airlines over the 2017 spring semester.

While at United, she will be working in the Quality Assurance Department – Technical Services at United’s Corporate Support Center located inside the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) in Chicago, Ill.

Mulhearn’s roles will include helping United maintain the safety requirements for the Federal Aviation Administration, and also United Airlines quality standards and requirements.

ULM’s Aviation program director Dr. Paul Karlowitz said, “[Mulhearn] is an excellent student and most deserving of this internship.

Mulhearn will return in Fall of 2017 to finish her bachelor’s degree. She is a member of 31 Ambassadors and Phi Mu sorority.
