Libertyville native spends summer at Jim Henson Company internship

Eren Joyce has perhaps the coolest summer job you’ve ever heard of — but they can’t talk about any of it.

Joyce, 22, of Green Oaks, was one of just 40 students from across the country hand-picked for the Television Academy Foundation Summer Internship Program. For eight weeks, they interned in the children’s programming development department at the Jim Henson Company in Los Angeles.

Joyce is a 2022 graduate of Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who majored in digital media and writing-intensive English.
