Huayu Gao is the latest intern to volunteer in the Finance area of Good News Partners. The nonprofit has a very small paid staff and relies on volunteers and interns to fulfill its wide variety of duties and responsibilities. Some of these duties include making timely payments to vendors and employees. Huayu, who has both some auditing experience along with her recent graduation with an advanced degree in accounting from Loyola University, is a great example of volunteerism. She expressed the desire to learn more about the organization from a posting and was excited to explore a role within the Finance group. Kenn Johnson, the Comptroller is experienced with both volunteers and interns. Kenn remarked, “Huayu has been a very capable and dedicated intern. She comes in 2 to 3 days a week, and has performed a variety of duties. It helps that she is very familiar with Excel spreadsheets. She has been very helpful in keeping track of various labor and expense issues.”
