Kaleo Partnership

For many years, students represented by the Kaleo organization have been coming to South Baldwin County to celebrate their religious vocation and to work in our businesses during the summer months. In Greek, Kaleo means “to call” with Timothy 1:9 being our focal verse. “He has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.”

Kaleo is an experience that provides college students with an exciting opportunity for developing their leadership, character, and faith. Each student at Kaleo works a full-time job. In their off hours, they deepen friendships and gain skills to help them study the bible and apply it to their lives.

To add to this very valuable experience the Gateway team has approached Kaleo leadership to extend an additional opportunity to these students - internships. According to Tyler Morgan with the Gateway team, “Earlier this year we received an email from a Kaleo student, Logan Cone, who had reached out to numerous chambers of commerce to pursue an internship opportunity.” Logan is majoring in Operations and Supply Chain Management at Kansas State University where he will be a senior in the fall. “We interviewed Logan via Zoom and were so impressed that we grabbed him up right away as a Gateway intern for eight weeks this summer,” continued Morgan. “He hit the ground running and completed two projects that we have wanted to get to and never could, now we have up-to-date data on childcare services and workforce housing in Baldwin county.”

Alongside his major, his minors include Economics, Data Analytics, and Sales. His passion lies in economic and business policy, and he aspires to pursue roles in this field within either the public or private sector. As an active member of his campus community, Logan has had the privilege of serving as the Legislative Director for the student government, where he spearheads advocacy efforts on behalf of the student body. Additionally, he gained valuable experience last summer through an internship with Congressman Tracey Mann (KS-01). This opportunity engaged Logan in constituent outreach and casework, further deepening his understanding of public service and the importance of effective communication and problem-solving. His experience and passion for making a difference in the community made him an excellent addition to the Gateway team for this past Summer.

The Gateway Team is now working with Kaleo leadership and regional employers to add internships to the opportunities presented to Kaleo students. In this labor market, it is more important than ever to recognize talent and offer opportunities where students can be challenged, build their resumes, and hopefully be offered employment after graduation from their colleges.
