January 6, 2009
NewPark Drilling Fluids recently partnered with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Department of Entrepreneurship and Computer Systems in Weatherford by providing a $5,880 grant to create a student internship program.
SWOSU computer science student Joseph Bearbow of Carnegie will provide information technology support under the supervision of Bill White, an NDF employee at the Clinton facility. Madeline Baugher, instructor in the SWOSU School of Business and Technology, is the principal investigator for the award.
The internship program will encourage undergraduate student interns to prepare for careers in scientific and technical fields. Interns will work on tasks identified by NDF, the fourth largest drilling fluids company in the world. Baugher said students will receive hands-on instruction, compensation and invaluable experience through this internship arrangement.
