EmPower Intern Accepted to MIT
EmPower Solar congratulates Josh Haimson our exceptional summer intern, for acceptance to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) class of 2016. Josh is the third EmPower team member to attend MIT. He is currently a senior at Mepham High School in Bellmore, NY.
Josh was a stellar intern and was a pleasure to have in the office. He provided a wide range of technical, administrative, creative, and direct business development support for the sales, marketing and engineering departments. Josh is motivated by all the right reasons. In order to get hired and stay at this company you have to represent the EmPowering Way values: Professionalism, Teamwork, Excellence, Client Focus and Commitment to Clean Energy. Josh represents the EmPowering Way and then some. He is committed to the broader themes of sustainability. He grasps that a smarter, cleaner, and greener energy infrastructure will lead to a more prosperous, healthy and civil world. He wants to contribute to a better world in a big way.
Impressively, Josh also demonstrated to his parents that going solar made economic sense. The Haimson’s are now EmPowered with a 10 kW system.
David Schieren, CEO, and Greg Sachs, COO commented that “his combination of intellect, technical competency, cultural understanding and emotional intelligence at his age (or at any age) is something we’ve never encountered before. Josh is remarkable and everyone at EmPower speaks glowingly about him. We feel fortunate to know him, and only hope to spend more time with him in the future. Pictures of Josh adorn multiple walls and doorways at our office and they are not coming down.”
EmPower Solar extends a hearty congratulations to Josh, and we wish him the best of luck as he heads off to Boston next fall. He left an indelible mark on the company and is an inspiration to us all. There is no doubt in my mind he will perform exceptionally well in all of his future pursuits. It’s a good thing for humanity that he is dedicated to a better, more sustainable world.
