New Hire Spotlight: Courtney Prate

Courtney Prate
Content Editor

Intech Services is excited to announce the new hire of Courtney Prate. Courtney joins the Marketing Team as Content Editor. She provides the team with writing and grammar experience to enhance our brand and continue to grow the professional voice of our company’s website, blogs, social media, marketing materials, press releases, and emails.

Courtney is currently a student at the University of Delaware, pursuing two Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Interpersonal Communication. She will graduate in the spring of 2016.

How 2016 is Shaping Up

Intech’s Wellness team is kicking off 2016 with the second annual weight loss challenge. Last year, the winning team lost a total of 116 pounds. This year is already shaping up to be just as competitive and exciting. Participating Intech Service employees weighed in on Monday, January 8th to register their starting weight. 

Each person set a personal weight loss goal that he or she will work to achieve over the next eight weeks. Everyone is assigned a team, and after 8 weeks of weekly weigh-ins, the team with the largest percentage of weight loss will win. 

The weight loss challenge keeps everyone motivated to stay on track through a strong support system and public accountability. 

The Wellness Team is excited to make 2016 the healthiest year yet at Intech.

Intech Services Slings Drinks and Supports The Troops

Intech’s Community Service team is excited for their upcoming fundraiser. On March 3rd, Intech Services is partnering with Catherine Rooney’s Irish Pub, a local Wilmington Delaware family-owned restaurant, to host a guest bartender night that will raise money for  the Children of the DE National Guard Youth Camp, a non-profit organization that supports   our Delaware Air and Army Guardsman's families. Camp Colwell is ​an annual one-week, overnight youth camp at Bethany beach that benefits the children of the Delaware National Guard. ​Our fundraising event will feature Intech employees behind the bar slinging drinks and soliciting tips. In addition, there will be a DJ, free appetizers, raffle prizes, and even a live auction with our Vice President, Chris Dohl as the enigmatic auctioneer. Individuals and local companies have generously donated raffle prizes and auction items. 

All money from raffles, tips, auction, and ticket sales will go directly to Camp Colwell. Funding for the camp is provided by monetary and material donations of businesses, organizations, and individuals as well as grants; it costs approximately $45,000.00 a year to run. The seven-day residential Camp accommodates approximately 105 youth and 65 volunteers. Campers are 9-12 year olds and the Junior Counselor Corps are 13-17 years old.  The campers participate in classes, excursions, arts and craft activities, recreational events, and team building activities. Camp Colwell seeks to have kids better understand why parents serve in the Delaware National Guard and to interact with other children that have experienced deployments of a family member. The camp’s goal is to nurture boys and girls to become productive, engaged, patriotic citizens. 

We look forward to having a great time and raising money for a worthy cause.

Adopt a Family

Intech Services’ Community Service team, which focuses on how we as a company can give back to the community, was able to adopt two families in the community for the holidays. Intech, through the generosity of owner Mike Patterson, was able to provide gifts, a holiday dinner, and extra groceries to both families. Our employees split up into teams and spent the afternoon shopping for everything from educational toys to winter jackets and crib sheets. To wrap up the giving, we held our annual wrap party after work so every family will have presents under the tree this Christmas.  This is our third year adopting a family for Christmas, and it‘s a tradition we look forward to continuing. Intech values being able to do our part to make others’ holidays merry and bright. We love building our team internally by working together for the betterment of others. How do you celebrate the season?
