SRMC Summer Interns Assist a Neighbor in Need through Project VISION

AIKEN, S.C. (June 27, 2024) — A group of Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC) summer interns volunteered their time and talent to assist a local resident through a United Way of Aiken County service project.

A group of Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC) interns and employees participated in a community service project to help a neighbor in need.

Project V.I.S.I.O.N., or Volunteers In Service In Our Neighborhoods, gives groups an opportunity to assist people in the community who cannot perform home repair projects themselves and is geared toward making homes safe and livable.


The SRMC volunteers’ efforts included rebuilding a deck and stairs, replacing three windows, conducting yardwork, and cleaning up trash around the property.


Mike Costain, SRMC Program Integration and Mission Excellence Manager, served as the team lead for the project. Costain enjoyed working with the interns while also teaching them about the importance of doing projects like this with safety in mind.


“There is always something you can do to help your community,” Costain said. “I hope that this service project taught our interns the importance of lending a helping hand, which models our company’s core values of safety, reliability, mutual respect, and continuous improvement.”


JoAnn Henry, an intern working with SRMC’s Flowsheet Development and Facility Integration, said she was amazed at how much work was done by the end of the day.


“I liked that SRMC gave us the opportunity to take part in a project that we will be able to reflect on in years to come,” Henry said. “It made me feel more a part of the Aiken community by helping someone local despite being more than 600 miles from home.”

SRMC comprises parent company BWX Technologies, Inc. with partners Amentum and Fluor. Its team brings the capabilities necessary to accelerate cleanup at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site through safe nuclear operations, optimized and integrated mission execution, and strong corporate governance.
