Meet the Interns. A little peak at the crew who makes GOAT happen during the summer. Learn why they chose GOAT, some of their goals for the summer, their favorite Top 40 songs, and some other important things.
Whitney is GOAT’s “team mom”. Raising a pack of seven interns is only marginally different than raising her two-year old, Cooper. Whitney will be graduating from North Greenville University in August.
