Student creates database solution

David Meehan of Londonderry is a computer information systems junior at University of New Hampshire and recently came up with a solution to help the YWCA in Manchester with its donations system through software development and computer skills.

Meehan won a fellowship to spend a summer internship at the Y and implemented the project.

“There’s a lot of stuff that you experience, but when you do it for real is really different,” he said. “It actually means a lot; software development is something that I am interested in pursuing as a career so to have this firsthand experience was absolutely terrific.”
