Local student gets internship with TLC show
Lindsay Frank of Ellendale, who is majoring in hotel, restaurant and tourism management at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, has accepted an internship.
Frank has been traveling the country getting real-world experience in her major while working along side Randy Fenoli, the star of the TLC hit reality show, “Say Yes to the Dress.”
In her internship Frank coordinates appointments for brides-to-be and assists the camera crew.
Frank was hired by the Wedding Guys, a Twin Cities company that holds major bridal shows around the country. The Wedding Guys provide the bridal show infrastructure for TLC and Fenoli’s spinoff show, “Randy to the Rescue.”
The Wedding Guys have hired UW-Stout students in the past and as a result interviewed members of the Stout Events Society for “Randy to the Rescue” jobs.
Frank, as part of the university’s cooperative education program through career services, is paid and receives academic credit.
Frank hopes to work in the hotel industry and may use this experience to someday start a wedding planning business.
