A Word from Our Leadership Team!
The internship program is one of the main factors that helped shape my freshman year, and it has had a big impact on who I am today. Through this program, I learned what it really means to be responsible and reliable, the true difference between by standing and taking action, and what it really takes to be a good leader. The specialists that taught me were thorough and knowledgeable, and some of them are even better at teaching than my current high school teachers. The tests the coordinators prepare us for are extremely challenging, and really make sure we know the criteria and protocols we were trained in. One of the most memorable components of joining internship, however, was the loving and accepting family that came with it. Not only did we have a swarm of fellow interns who helped each other through everything, but we had our superiors to look up to– people who we could rely on to be role models and to direct us in all the right places. Internship, bound tight with sweat and training, provided a place of security and familiarity– an anchor I really needed, coming into a huge high school full of new and intimidating people. This program has been an invaluable experience, and it, undoubtedly, will affect the way I live my life now and the person I am in the future.
