Bhuiyan (shown at right) is a student in the Cybersecurity curriculum and hopes to pursue a career in law enforcement and security. The internship is for the duration of Utica College's spring term, and includes a $2,000 scholarship, supported jointly by the Club's Service Fund dollars, and funds from the Oneida Co. Sheriff's Law Enforcement Foundation.

“This internship program has brought me one step closer to achieving a lifelong dream," noted Bhuiyan, the second Rotary Club of Utica intern to be hosted by the Sheriff's Department.

Since its founding in 2014, the Utica Rotary internship program has placed nearly two dozen students from three area colleges (Utica College/Mohawk Valley CC/SUNY Poly) into local businesses and nonprofits for semester-long internships.

Utica Rotary would like to thank both the Sheriff's Department and its Law Enforcement Foundation for their support of the internship program.
