College intern Spencer Isom recently began her second summer with Savannah River Remediation, and fourth year at Savannah River Site, continuing a 31-year family legacy.
Isom, from Evans, attends the University of Georgia in Athens as a fifth year senior in biochemical engineering. She started college majoring in chemistry, but soon her father, Walt Isom, an engineer himself, encouraged her to try another path.
“I ignored him at first because he was biased,” said Isom. “But finally I switched to the engineering program for a year and ended up loving it.”
