Syracuse University Student Chosen as First Micron Intern Hire From Syracuse Veteran Community

Savion Pollard ’25 joined the U.S. Navy as a 21-year-old looking to be part of something bigger than himself and inspire others. Pollard served for eight years, working as a nuclear electronics technician on nuclear submarines and training other sailors; it was a successful mission in service to others and his country.

Now, Pollard is once again taking on a role to inspire—with a company that is making a big impact in Central New York and beyond.

Pollard, a student in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, has been selected by Micron Technology, which plans to build a $100 billion semiconductor fabrication facility in the Town of Clay, New York, as the company’s first intern hire from the Syracuse veteran community.
