Jordan LeJeune (Student)
For many students, summer consists of taking some much needed leisure time. This past summer, Jordan LeJeune’s so-called “leisure time” was spent hanging out with dolphins.
LeJeune left Texas over the summer to complete an internship at the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Fla., where she gained level-one experience in the Animal Care and Training Unit. For three months she learned the necessities and details of what animal trainers must do. Fridays, she said, were her “dolphin days” where she shadowed training sessions and, in time, gave back rubs, practiced handshakes and gave kisses to the dolphins. LeJeune worked particularly close with one dolphin named Rainbow. She admitted that she was in awe when given the opportunity to kiss the dolphin..
