Ignite 2024 begins an unforgettable summer for Garver Launch

You’d expect the Best Firm to Work For to provide the best internship program for future young professionals, and it does! Garver Launch is a comprehensive internship program that allows college students to work alongside the best professionals in the industry. This summer, Garver Launch includes 135 students from 42 colleges and universities.

Recently, students gathered in Oklahoma City for Ignite, Garver Launch’s two-day internship orientation. This fun-filled event provides several opportunities for networking, learning from Garver leaders, and bonding with fellow interns over games and team-building activities.

During Ignite, interns heard from many of Garver’s leaders, including President and CEO Brock Hoskins and COO Michael Graves. There were sessions on several key topics, including what Launch Class 2024 should expect during their internship and a look at Garver’s rich history.

Launch interns also had the opportunity to meet with professionals from several business lines, including Aviation, Transportation, Water, Buildings, Corporate Support, Field Services, and Enterprise Solutions.

A common highlight among many Ignite attendees was the program-wide dinner at Chicken N Pickle, where interns enjoyed delicious food, listened to live music, and played a lot of pickleball.

Garver Wellness hosted a yoga session to kick off the final day of Ignite.

The Ignite experience wrapped up with two different site visits offered by Garver’s Water and Transportation Teams, giving Launch Class 2024 the choice between touring the Norman Water Reclamation Facility or the James Garner Avenue Extension. These visits gave students an inside look at two of Garver’s key infrastructure projects in Oklahoma.
