Meet Courtney Krauter

With the start of August comes a sharp increase in plaid skirts and khaki pants around the Harrison Center office spaces. School is back in session, and as happens every year, some students have migrated over to the Harrison Center for their internships. In the coming weeks, we’ll be introducing you to these interns, and getting to know their story and specific roles in their internship.

In this post we'll highlight Courtney Krauter, a senior at Herron High School hoping to gain experience in various communication fields.

During her internships at the Harrison Center, Courtney will work as a video intern to collaboratively create promo videos for events and happenings around the HCA. On her own time, she loves meeting new people and creating travel videos, and hopes her internship will expand her interest by improving her marketing and editing skills, along with further developing her relationship with the Indianapolis community.

Courtney was drawn to the Harrison Center by its communal, friendly environment. “The HCA acts as a sort of vessel for community development and creativity,” which leads to a sense of camaraderie among the staff, artists, and surrounding neighborhoods.

An active participant in the arts herself, Courtney performs in musicals, sings with her sister, and plays the acoustic guitar and ukulele. Some of her favorite musicians are Fleet Foxes, Bears Den, and BØRNS, and she enjoys watching Bob’s Burgers, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and any Wes Anderson film. While she lives in Carmel, she feels that her community is Herron-Morton Place, “because my school, internship, family and friends reside around here.”

Bonus Question: Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized elephants or 1 elephant-sized duck? Why?

“Duck-sized elephants because I’m literally scared of ducks as they are and I would train the little elephants to cuddle and love me.”

Bonus Question: Which is the best: Parks and Recreation, The Office, or 30 Rock? Why?

“Parks and Recreation. Ron Swanson. Need I say more?”
